That looks like the right fix to me. Ideally, the DT should probably
define an LVDS connector node (if not a panel) in this case like we do
for other cases with DDC, but more importantly we shouldn't require a
DT update to fix things. If you needed power or gpio controls of the
panel you would also need some node in DT.

Do you mind sending a proper patch?
