You are correct, I need to rework this code

Although I tend to avoid open-coding, but this seems the necessary

Not sure this will work: nothing prevents you from attaching multiple
FBs to a single dumb handle
So, not only ref-counting should be done here, but I also need to check
if the dumb buffer,
we are attaching to, has been created already

So, I will rework with open-coding some stuff from CMA helpers

Probably I am not sure of which indirection we are talking about, could
you please
specifically mark those annoying you?

I'll try to play with this:

on backend disconnect I will do the following:
    drm_dev_unplug(dev)
    xen_drm_front_evtchnl_free_all(front_info);
    dbuf_free_all(&front_info->dbuf_list);
    devm_kfree(&front_info->xb_dev->dev, front_info->drm_info);
    front_info->drm_info = NULL;
    xenbus_switch_state(front_info->xb_dev, XenbusStateInitialising);

on drm_driver.release callback:

    drm_atomic_helper_shutdown(dev);
    drm_mode_config_cleanup(dev);

    drm_dev_fini(dev);
    kfree(dev);

Does the above make sense?

Probably misunderstanding comes from the fact that it is possible if backend
dies it may still have its XenBus state set to connected, thus
displback_disconnect callback will never be called. For that reason on rmmod
I call fini for the DRM driver to destroy it.

That was the idea to allow dummy user-space to get an error in
display_check and close, going through display_disable.
Yes, compositors will die in this case.

Unfortunatelly, there is little software available which will benefit
from this out of the box. I am specifically interested in embedded
use-cases, e.g. Android (DRM HWC2 - doesn't support hotplug, HWC1.4 doesn't
support link status), Weston (no device hotplug, but connectors and
outputs).
Other software, like kmscube, modetest will not handle that as well.
So, such software will hang forever until killed.

I believe you are talking about drm_simple_display_pipe_funcs?
Do you mean I have to put drm_dev_is_unplugged in display_enable,
display_disable and display_update callbacks?

Ok, will have a dedicated work for that. The reasons why I put this into the
detect callback were:
- the periodic worker is already there, and I do nothing heavy
  in this callback
- if frame done has timed out it most probably means that
  backend has gone, so 10 sec period of detect timeout is also ok: thus
I don't
  need to schedule a work each page flip which could be a bit costly
So, probably I will also need a periodic work (or kthread/timer) for
frame done time-outs

Agree, I will remove this callback completely: I have
drm_connector_funcs.fill_modes == drm_helper_probe_single_connector_modes,
so it will only pick my single hardcoded mode from
drm_connector_helper_funcs.get_modes
callback (connector_get_modes).

Not sure I understand why do I need to provide a callback here?
For simple KMS the drm_simple_kms_crtc_mode_valid callback is used,
which always returns MODE_OK if there is no .mode_valid set for the pipe.
As per my understanding drm_simple_kms_crtc_mode_valid is only called for
modes, which were collected by drm_helper_probe_single_connector_modes,
so I assume each time .validate_mode is called it can only have my hardcoded
mode to validate?

Not sure how mode_valid is relevant to this code [1]: This function is
called
in the check phase of an atomic update, specifically when the underlying
plane is checked. But, anyways: the reason for this callback and it
returning
-EINVAL is primarialy for a dumb user-space which cannot handle hotplug
events.
But, as you mentioned before, it will make most compositors die, so I
will remove this

Thank you for reviewing,
Oleksandr
