Sure.34 is a good place for these. I don't pay as much attention to .34
as the others, as we have no release based on it. We'll be supporting
.33 drm for a while yet in 10.04, a long-term release.
If you want to apply them to .34 you'll need the ones that I didn't bash
around the renaming. That's mainline commits:
4a655f043160eeae447efd3be297b6b4c397a640 drm/i915: add PANEL_UNLOCK_REGS
9934c132989d5c488d2e15188220ce240960ce96 drm/i915: make sure eDP panel is turned on
5620ae29f1eabe655f44335231b580a78c8364ea drm/i915: make sure we shut off the panel in eDP configs
