Yeah, looks like I got this wrong when I added the pipe bpp field.
Wonder if there's a good way to catch this sort of bug with an assert
so we don't get the order mixed up again...

The big downside here is that we'll be very pessimistic about the link
bw requirements for say 16 or 8bpp modes.

I see you have another patch to address some of this, but I wonder if
we have enough info to calculate the bpp at prepare time so it's set
early on for use by both the crtc and encoder code?
