SubjectRe: [PATCH v1 0/19] drm/panel: drmP.h removal and DRM_DEV*

The rationale for using DRM_DEV* are solely that if a struct device * is avalible,
then we can use this to provide more information about the origin of the logging.

I have not testet it - but from browsing the code I could not see that
DRM_ERROR and friends picked up the module name.
If DRM_ERROR is the right choice I will redo the patches - no problem.

But if we loose the module name then the DRM_DEV* variants are preferable IMO.

Note: I missed DRM_DEV_WARN(), so I left one dev_warn() in the code.

Sam
