Subject[PATCH] drm: rcar-du: Fix R-Car Gen3 crash when VSP is disabled
From: Magnus Damm <>

For the DU to operate on R-Car Gen3 hardware a combination of DU
and VSP devices are required. Since the DU driver also supports
earlier generations hardware the VSP portion is enabled via Kconfig.

The arm64 defconfig is as of v4.9-rc1 having the DU driver enabled
as a module, however this is not enough to support R-Car Gen3. In
the current case of CONFIG_DRM_RCAR_VSP=n then the kernel crashes
when loading the module. This patch is fixing that particular case.

In more detail, the crash triggers in drm_atomic_get_plane_state()
when __drm_atomic_helper_set_config() passes NULL as crtc->primary.

This patch corrects this issue by failing to load the DU driver on
R-Car Gen3 when VSP is not available.
