Thanks. Your advice is quite helpful.

I got the BMP and BSF, created a vBIOS which enables the DDI2 as DP. The vBIOS 
has been

validated by IBV(AMI) BIOS.

But the VBIOS can not enable DDI2 in Coreboot. I assume I still miss something.

No, unfortunately not. This setting only affects the panel power sequen-
cer (i.e. which port needs special care because it hosts a panel whose
power is controlled by us). It shouldn't affect the VBIOS.

Again, the VBIOS has many options, set in the binary. I know free tools
to dump them partially, but none to set them. The regular way is to ask
Intel for their Binary Modification Program (BMP, may be compatible with
Intel's Binary Configuration Tool [1]) *and* a description file for the
Video BIOS Table format (.bsf IIRC). That .bsf file is specific to the
chipset generation (I can't find one for Broadwell, sadly), though, one
for another generation might work too. Sometimes these files can be
found in graphics driver packages or FSP [2].

If you happen to get the Intel tool running, I advice to double check
the result in a hex editor (e.g. there should be only the change you
made, plus about two checksums).
