The simple panel code currently allows panels to define fixed delays
at certain stages of initialization.  These work OK, but they don't
really map all that clearly to the requirements presented in many
panel datasheets.  Instead of defining a fixed delay, those datasheets
provide a timing diagram and specify a minimum amount of time that
needs to pass from event A to event B.

Because of the way things are currently defined, most panels end up
over-delaying.  One prime example here is that a number of panels I've
looked at define the amount of time that must pass between turning a
panel off and turning it back on again.  Since there is no way to
specify this, many developers have listed this as the "unprepare"
delay.  However, if nobody ever tried to turn the panel on again in
the next 500 ms (or whatever the delay was) then this delay was
pointless.  It's better to do the delay only in the case that someone
tried to turn the panel on too quickly.

Let's support specifying delays as constraints.  We'll start with the
one above and also a second one: the minimum time between prepare
being done and doing the enable.  On the panel I'm looking at, there's
an 80 ms minimum time between HPD being asserted by the panel and
setting the backlight enable GPIO.  By specifying as a constraint we
can enforce this without over-delaying.  Specifically the link
training is allowed to happen in parallel with this delay so adding a
fixed 80 ms delay isn't ideal.

Changes in v2:
- Inline the kernel doc for the two new members.
- Beefed up kernel doc saying exactly when the delay happens.
- Removed "_ms" from the end of members to shorten them.
- Renamed "timing_constraints" to "min_times" to shorten it.
- Renamed "enforce_constraint()" to "wait_min_time()" to shorten it.
- Check "prepared_time" against 0 to see if we've been prepared.

Though I swear I tested this, clearly I didn't test well enough.  I
was poking with this patch series some more and realized that I got
the above (and the one in _prepare) totally and utterly backwards.
I'll send out a v3 now...
