I looked at that a while back and given that we can't look inside any of
the DP structs the only sensible solution I could come up with was to
create another array in struct msm_drm_private with "edp controllers".

But that means everywhere we today poke at priv->dp we need to also poke
at priv->edp. And the only gain is that we can say that the eDP
controller is INTF_EDP. And if there's ever a controller that could do
both, then that breaks down anyways.
