I do think we still need keep this DT prop yet.

I think drm_dp_help.c could get the "panel" max link-rate and lane-count,
but it's not enough, we still need knew the "eDP controller" max link-rate
and lane-count.

Let me show the exact example that happened in my side. When I connect
my board to my 2K DP-1.2 TV. Analogix dp driver would get the max link-rate
from dpcd, and the max link-rate is 5.4Gbps. So if I just set eDP 
controller link-rate
to 5.4Gbps, the DP TV just broken, do not light up normally.

This reason why TV broken is the max link-rate which support by RK3288 eDP
controller is 2.7Gbps. Here are the exact words that RK3288 eDP TRM said:

*Compliant with DisplayPortTM Specification, Version 1.2.
Compliant with eDPTM Specification, Version 1.3.
HDCP v1.3 amendment for DisplayPortTM Revision 1.0.
Main link containing 4 physical lanes of 2.7/1.62 Gbps/lane

Beside I haven't found there are some registers would indicate the eDP 
max link-rate and lane-count, so this is why I still instance that we 
need this DT
prop to indicata "Max rate controller support".

So, I wish you could agree with me on this point.
