Well, they were placed in there since rv770d.h was used by all r7xx
asics which is a mix of DCE3.1 and 3.2.  As far as I recall, 3.1 is
pretty much the same as 3.0 from a programming perspective, but it's
been a while since I looked at it in detail.  The current hdmi code
doesn't seem to have any DCE3.1 specific code at the moment.
