I had discussed internally with the team. Traditionally, mdp clk vote during
probe/bind is required when display is turned on in bootloader and persists
till first update in kernel. As in chromebook, timing engine will be turned
off during depthcharge exit and as there is no display transition from
bootloader to kernel, mdp clk can be voted based on the calculated value
during framework update and does not required vote during probe/bind.

Thanks,
