SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 5/6] dt-bindings: add the rockchip, dual-channel for dw-mipi-dsi
Hi Archit,

I'm a relative n00b here, but I'm trying to follow along and I have some
questions:

Does this mean we depend on probe order? Or would we be able to
-EPROBE_DEFER or similar if dsi1 binds first?

So, that all means we'd need a new variant of
drm_of_find_panel_or_bridge() for "dual" drivers like this? Or else
open-code this logic in dw-mipi-dsi.c?

That seems...interesting. I guess that sounds like it could work, but
someone would have to play with that a bit more.

I assume one wouldn't want to do all this in every dual DSI driver that
needs this, right?

It's unfortunate we have the anti-pattern already merged :(
