The pre-retina MacBook Pro uses an LVDS panel and a gmux controller
to switch the panel between its two GPUs. While the gmux is able to
switch the DDC lines, we can also emulate DDC switching in software
by using the active client as a proxy to talk to the panel. This
gives us two ways to switch, one requiring the apple-gmux driver
and the other requiring the active client's driver.

To that end, when probing DDC, if we're unable to talk to the panel
ourselves and the connector in question is of type LVDS, try proxying
via the vga_switcheroo active client.
