Ah! OK, this makes sense. I can work on this, though it might be a
short while before I can. I think moving all eDP panels out of
panel-simple.c to something like panel-simple-edp.c makes sense. It
will be a patch that will be very hard to cherry-pick anywhere since
it will conflict with everything but it should be doable.

At the moment I haven't done much with DSI panels so I might leave
them in panel-simple for now. I'll evaluate to see how nasty it would
be for me to try this.

Feel better!
