[PATCH] drm: bridge/dw_hdmi: Filter modes > 165MHz for DVI

If you plug in a DVI monitor to your HDMI port, you need to filter out
clocks > 165MHz.  That's because 165MHz is the maximum clock rate that
we can run single-link DVI at.

If you want to run high resolutions to DVI, you'd need some type of an
active adapter that pretended that it was HDMI, interpreted the
signal, and produced a new dual link DVI signal at a lower clock rate.

Note: this patch was tested against a 3.14 kernel with backports.  It
was only compile tested against linuxnext, but the code is
sufficiently similar that I'm convinced it will work there.
