I can see that from your patches, but you are not explaining why you
need the change. And if the framework doesn't work for your case, you
should certainly try and fix the framework instead of working around
the issue.

Anyway, you should probably look into using drm_panel_bridge_add, it
might fix the underlying issue on its own.

I any case, you need to state what your problem is (in the commit log,
and not even in subsequent discussions) so that we can have a chance to
understand it and provide some feedback about what is an appropriate
fix and what is not. We can't understand the fix if we can't understand
the underlying issue.
