CEA ext block revisions 1 and 2 do not contain the data block
collection. Instead that section of the extension block is
marked as reserved for 8 byte timing descriptors. Revision 3
changed it to contain the CEA data block collection instead.

Most places that iterate the data blocks already check for
revision >= 3, but drm_detect_hdmi_monitor() and
drm_detect_monitor_audio() do not. So in theory when encountering
rev 1 or 2 CEA extension block they could end up misinterpreting
whatever data is in the reserved section as CEA data blocks.

Let's have cea_db_offsets() do the revision check so that the
callers don't even have worry about it.

Reviewed-by: Jean Delvare <jdelvare@suse.de>

I like it, but then we need a subsequent patch to remove the now
redundant checks in add_cea_modes(), drm_edid_to_eld(),
drm_edid_to_sad() and drm_edid_to_speaker_allocation().

These last 2 functions are the ones my own patch modifies, so some care
is needed. If cea_db_offsets() now returns an error when CEA revisions
< 3, then these functions want to return 0 in that case (otherwise you
effectively undo the change I proposed).

By the way,  both functions issue a debug message "SAD: invalid data
block offsets" when cea_db_offsets() returns an error, which becomes
misleading after your change. I think we want to move this message
inside cea_db_offsets() and only print it in the -ERANGE case.
