I think we should give more details here about the limitations of this
property. How about the following explanation ?
- power-supply: display panels require power to be supplied. While several
panels need more than one power supply with panel-specific constraints
governing the order and timings of the power supplies, in many cases a single
power supply is sufficient, either because the panel has a single power rail,
or because all its power rails can be driven by the same supply. In that case
the power-supply property specifies the supply powering the panel as a phandle
to a regulator.
