Is it possible to reset the video subsystem

I have a product built on the i.MX6 DL. The display we're using connects via DVI to our board and makes use of the mxc_hdmi driver code. Occasionally the display gets into a state where it requires the display driver to be reset. A reset of the board works, but I'm trying to avoid a full reset. Is it possible to reset the display driver/video subsystem of just Linux/mxc_hdmi without having to reset the whole system?

 

Ideally I'd like some handle to change within Linux, but I'm willing to patch the kernel source if there's a good way this could be done from within the mxc_hdmi driver itself.
