Ok, the patch shouldn't be necessary then.

There's one copy that gets fetched when the displays are probed
(radeon_dp_getdpcd gets called from radeon_connectors.c).  Then
radeon_dp_set_link_config() which selects the number of names and link rate
gets called form radeon_atom_mode_fixup() before the mode is set.
