Yes, but infact I found another thing that in edp_panel_on we just 
blindly call this wait_for_panel_cycle. We can check there if any PPS is 
in progress at that time via PP_STAT, and if no PPS (mainly power down 
seq) we should just skip the wait. My understanding of the 
panel_power_cycle_delay is that if we power it off, we should not try to 
turn on within 500ms.
