Disabling graph endpoints in device trees

Is there a reason why endpoints in a device tree graph can't be

I would like to be able to force the use of a particular CRTC for
certain outputs even though the hardware is capable of connecting any
CRTC to any output.  In this case I need to be able to support a wide
range of frequencies for external HDMI monitors so I will configure one
of the CRTCs to be able to generate these while the other will be tied
into a limited set of clock rates as a result of the overall system
clock setup.

Currently this can only be achieved by removing the endpoints from the
base SoC .dtsi file but it feels like it should be possible to add
'status = "disabled"' to the nodes in the board-specific .dts in order
to disable undesirable configurations.

I tested the change below and it behaves exactly as I want, but I don't
claim to understand all of the users of these functions to know if it
will break something else (hence this isn't a formal patch).
