Since we're not trying to support HDMI post v1.4 we don't have signals
above 10GHz on this interface at least.  Thankfully none of the signal
trace vias need to be drilled out since our signals always traverse
the whole via.

Hopefully most of what we can't accomplish with symmetry we can remedy
with creativity.
