Subject[PATCH 5.2 032/137] drm/tinydrm/Kconfig: drivers: Select BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE
Date
From: Noralf Trønnes <noralf@tronnes.org>

[ Upstream commit 3389669ac5ea598562673c04971d7bb0fab0e9f1 ]

The mipi_dbi helper is missing a dependency on DRM_KMS_HELPER and putting
that in revealed this problem:

drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:12:error: recursive dependency detected!
drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:12: symbol FB is selected by DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER
drivers/gpu/drm/Kconfig:75: symbol DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER depends on DRM_KMS_HELPER
drivers/gpu/drm/Kconfig:69: symbol DRM_KMS_HELPER is selected by TINYDRM_MIPI_DBI
drivers/gpu/drm/tinydrm/Kconfig:11: symbol TINYDRM_MIPI_DBI is selected by TINYDRM_HX8357D
drivers/gpu/drm/tinydrm/Kconfig:15: symbol TINYDRM_HX8357D depends on BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE
drivers/video/backlight/Kconfig:144: symbol BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE is selected by FB_BACKLIGHT
drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:187: symbol FB_BACKLIGHT depends on FB

A symbol that selects DRM_KMS_HELPER can not depend on
BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE. The reason for this is that DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER
selects FB instead of depending on it.

The tinydrm drivers have somehow gotten away with depending on
BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE because DRM_TINYDRM selects DRM_KMS_HELPER and the
drivers depend on that symbol.

An audit shows that all DRM drivers that select DRM_KMS_HELPER and use
BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE, selects it:
DRM_TILCDC, DRM_GMA500, DRM_SHMOBILE, DRM_NOUVEAU, DRM_FSL_DCU,
DRM_I915, DRM_RADEON, DRM_AMDGPU, DRM_PARADE_PS8622

Documentation/kbuild/kconfig-language.txt has a note regarding select:
1. 'select should be used with care since it doesn't visit dependencies.'
This is not a problem since BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE doesn't have any
dependencies.
2. 'In general use select only for non-visible symbols'
BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE is user visible.

The real solution to this would be to have DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER depend on the
user visible symbol FB. That is a can of worms I'm not willing to tackle.
I fear that such a change will result in me handling difficult fallouts
for the next weeks. So I'm following DRM suite here.
