Please, let's not do either. This doesn't belong in the compatible
string. The compatible string specifies the panel, and the panel
supports both video and command modes. That's implied by the compatible
Which mode to use is a configuration or policy decision and therefore
doesn't belong in device tree. It should be up to the display driver to
determine what the preferred mode of operation is.
