Took a quick look, feels rather un-atomic. And there's beend discussing
for other bridge related state that we might want to track (like the full
adjusted_mode that might need to be adjusted at each stage in the chain).
So here's my suggestions:

- Add an optional per-bridge internal state struct using the support in

https://dri.freedesktop.org/docs/drm/gpu/drm-kms.html#handling-driver-private-state

Yes it says "driver private", but since bridge is just helper stuff
that's all included. "driver private" == "not exposed as uapi" here.
Include all the usual convenience wrappers to get at the state for a
bridge.

- Then stuff your bus_format into that new drm_bridge_state struct.

- Add a new bridge callback atomic_check, which gets that bridge state as
parameter (similar to all the other atomic_check functions).

This way we can even handle the bus_format dynamically, through the atomic
framework your bridge's atomic_check callback can look at the entire
atomic state (both up and down the chain if needed), it all neatly fits
into atomic overall and it's much easier to extend.

Please also cc Laurent Pinchart on this.

Cheers, Daniel
