+boot script to boot with the correct device tree. If the board detected
+is not of type RG503 (which currently has only 1 panel revision) a
+panel detect is then performed by probing a "dummy" display on the DSI
+bus and then querying the display ID. The display ID is then compared
+to a table to get the known compatible string for use in Linux, and
+this string is saved as an environment variable of "panel".
+FDT fixups are performed in the event of an RG353M to change the device
+name, or in the event the panel detected does not match the devicetree.
+This allows Linux to load the correct panel driver without having to
+know exactly which panel is used (as there is no user distingushable
+way to tell).
