Unable to set "Content Type" bit for HDMI and DisplayPort
Submitted by N. W.

apparently the Intel HD Graphics driver for Windows has a "IT Content" option that can be either enabled or disabled, see following screenshot for example:
According to a post on the AVS Forum, enabling "IT Content" does the following:
HDMI specs "IT Content" flag is set On in video stream.
"In IT applications (e.g. involving bit mapped text),
each pixel in the source’s frame buffer is most clearly
displayed if it is directly mapped to a light-emitting pixel
on the display device - such that adjacent pixels are
completely independent and do not interact.
The IT content bit indicates when picture content is
composed according to common IT practice (i.e. without
regard to Nyquist criterion) and is unsuitable for
analog reconstruction or filtering. When the IT content bit
is set to 1, downstream processors should pass
pixel data unfiltered and without analog reconstruction."
Apparently there is no option for it on the RADEON Linux driver.
Can you please add an option to the RADEON Linux driver which allows to enable the "IT Content" bit?
