Quick glance tells me this is more or less just an in driver implementation
of the DP dual mode standard at this point. I recently posted some patches 
that implement dual mode support as a helper. So you should check it out
and try to layer whatever lspcon specifics on top of that.
The only thing missing from my patches was basically using i2c-over-aux
instead of gmbus for type2 adapters, but that's mostly just a matter of
passing the right i2c adapter to places.
