Is there a reason we have a Writeback connector, but keep using a
Virtual encoder to connect it to the CRTC? Wouldn't it make more sense
to also add a Writeback encoder?

Nitpick: you don't need the extra parenthesis:

if (connector_type != DRM_MODE_CONNECTOR_VIRTUAL &&
connector_type != DRM_MODE_CONNECTOR_WRITEBACK)

Maybe I'm wrong, but is feels weird to have the writeback_job field
directly embedded in drm_connector_state, while drm_writeback_connector
inherits from drm_connector.

IMO, either you decide to directly put the drm_writeback_connector's
job_xxx fields in drm_connector and keep the drm_connector_state as is,
or you create a drm_writeback_connector_state which inherits from
drm_connector_state and embeds the writeback_job field.

Anyway, wait for Daniel's feedback before doing this change.

AFAIU, a writeback connector will always require an 'dummy' encoder to
make the DRM framework happy (AFAIK, a connector is always connected to
a CRTC through an encoder).

Wouldn't it make more sense to have a drm_encoder object embedded in
drm_writeback_connector so that people don't have to declare an extra
structure containing both the drm_writeback_connector connector and a
drm_encoder? Is there a good reason to keep them separate?
