This extends the dumb VGA DAC bridge to handle the THS8134A
and THS8134B VGA DACs in addition to those already handled.

The THS8134A, THS8134B and as it turns out also THS8135 need to
have data clocked out at the negative edge of the clock pulse,
since they clock it into the DAC at the positive edge (so by
then it needs to be stable) so we need some extra logic to flag
this on the connector to the driver.

The semantics of the flag DRM_BUS_FLAG_PIXDATA_NEGEDGE in
<drm/drm_connector.h> clearly indicates that this flag tells
when to *drive* the data, not when the receiver *reads* it,
so the TI variants needs to be handled like this.

Introduce a variant struct and contain the information there,
and add a bit of helpful comments about how this works so
people will get it right when adding new DACs or connectiong
new display drivers to DACs.

The fact that THS8135 might be working on some systems today
is probably due to the fact that the display driver cannot
configure when the data is clocked out and the electronics
have simply been designed around it so it works anyways.

The phenomenon is very real on the ARM reference designs using
PL111 where the hardware can control which edge to push out
the data.

ChangeLog v2->v3:
- Move const specifier.
- Cut one line of code assigning bus flags.
- Preserve the "ti,ths8135" compatible for elder device trees.
ChangeLog v1->v2:
- Alphabetize includes
- Use a u32 with the bus polarity flags and just encode the
  polarity using the DRM define directly.
- Rename vendor_data to vendor_info.
- Simplify assignment of the flag as it is just a simple
  u32 now.
- Probe all TI variants on the "ti,ths813x" wildcard for now,
  we only need to know that the device is in this family to
  set the clock edge flag right.

Hi Linus,

Thank you for the patch.

Have you compiled this ?
