I think I remember seeing some panel or encoder asking for different
edges. But it's rather vague memory =).

Interestingly, the default behavior of OMAP DSS is to have data and sync
at different edges. I don't know what was the rationale for that design.

Another, slightly related, interesting thing is that only from OMAP4
forward we have had the possibility to have hsync and vsync happen at
the same time. Earlier hsync came first, followed by vsync. This old
behavior caused problems at least on one encoder I worked on.
