Subject: [PATCH 19/20] drm/i915: do not default to 18 bpp for eDP if missing
 from VBT

commit 9a30a61f3516871c5c638fd7c025fbaa11ddf7fe upstream.

commit 500a8cc466a24e2fbc4c86ef9c6467ae2ffdeb0c

    drm/i915: parse eDP panel color depth from VBT block

originally introduced parsing bpp for eDP from VBT, with a default of 18
bpp if the eDP BIOS data block is not present. Turns out that default seems
to break the Macbook Pro with retina display, as noted in

commit 4344b813f105a19f793f1fd93ad775b784648b95

    drm/i915: ignore eDP bpc settings from vbt

Since we can't ignore bpc settings from VBT completely after all, get rid
of the default. Do not clamp eDP to 18 bpp by default if the eDP BDB is
missing from VBT.
