Yeah, thanks for your explain, you are right. It's the best way to get 
and "color-space" from display driver, not to hard-code in DT prop.

But if the common analogix-dp driver want to get those values, then 
those values
should come from the common drm struct data. Personally I think "struct 
is the best place that should indicate the output ability of SoC vop/lcdc.

But I haven't find out there are some place to store those message for 
now (I don't
think it's good to modify the original color-space and color-bpc which 
parsed from
monitor edid).

So could you share sme ideas about this, and I would rather to talk with 
Mark (Author
of rockchip drm driver) to find out the better way to fix this one.

Besides, I would appreciate very much if you can share some ideas about 
how Exynos
handler with this problem ;)
