This is really just a revert of commit 58074b08c04a ("drm/bridge:
ti-sn65dsi86: Read EDID blob over DDC"), resolving conflicts.

The old code failed to read the EDID properly in a very important
case: before the bridge's pre_enable() was called. The way things need
to work:
1. Read the EDID.
2. Based on the EDID, decide on video settings and pixel clock.
3. Enable the bridge w/ the desired settings.

The way things were working:
1. Try to read the EDID but fail; fall back to hardcoded values.
2. Based on hardcoded values, decide on video settings and pixel clock.
3. Enable the bridge w/ the desired settings.
4. Try again to read the EDID, it works now!
5. Realize that the hardcoded settings weren't quite right.
6. Disable / reenable the bridge w/ the right settings.

The reasons for the failures were twofold:
a) Since we never ran the bridge chip's pre-enable then we never set
   the bit to ignore HPD. This meant the bridge chip didn't even _try_
   to go out on the bus and communicate with the panel.
b) Even if we fixed things to ignore HPD, the EDID still wouldn't read
   if the panel wasn't on.

Instead of reverting the code, we could fix it to set the HPD bit and
also power on the panel. However, it also works nicely to just let the
panel code read the EDID. Now that we've split the driver up we can
expose the DDC AUX channel bus to the panel node. The panel can take
charge of reading the EDID.

NOTE: in order for things to work, anyone that needs to read the EDID
will need to add something that looks like this to their panel in the
dts:
  ddc-i2c-bus = <&sn65dsi86_bridge>;

Presumably it's OK to land this without waiting for users to add the
dts property since the EDID reading was a bit broken anyway, was
"recently" added, and we know we must have the fallback mode to use
(since the EDID reading was a bit broken).
