Imho there should be an X implementation of this:
* driver side should be possible entirely from within the ddc module:
the ddc module could probe and initialise the ddci slave address for the
driver when handed the I2C bus for ddc and could handle everything else
* most work will be in the actual utility and the backend used for that.
But then, mode related control is very much unchartered territory for X.
