Actually, we could arguably enable hawaii since it does not support a DAC and there are no mobile skus.

Subject: [PATCH] drm/amdgpu: Don't default to DC support for Kaveri and older

We've had a number of users report failures to detect and light up
display with DC with LVDS and VGA. These connector types are not
currently supported with DC. I'd like to add support but unfortunately
don't have a system with LVDS or VGA available.

In order not to cause regressions we should probably fallback to the
non-DC driver for ASICs that support VGA and LVDS.

These ASICs are:
 * Hawaii
 * Bonaire
 * Kabini
 * Kaveri

ASIC support can always be force enabled with amdgpu.dc=1
