Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] Associate ddc adapters with connectors
It is difficult for a user to know which of the i2c adapters is for which
drm connector. This series addresses this problem.

The idea is to have a symbolic link in connector's sysfs directory, e.g.:

ls -l /sys/class/drm/card0-HDMI-A-1/ddc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jun 24 10:42 /sys/class/drm/card0-HDMI-A-1/ddc \
-> ../../../../soc/13880000.i2c/i2c-2

The user then knows that their card0-HDMI-A-1 uses i2c-2 and can e.g. run

ddcutil -b 2 getvcp 0x10
VCP code 0x10 (Brightness ): current value = 90, max value = 100

The first patch in the series adds struct i2c_adapter pointer to struct
drm_connector. If the field is used by a particular driver, then an
appropriate symbolic link is created by the generic code, which is also added
by this patch.

The second patch is an example of how to convert a driver to this new scheme.


- used fixed name "ddc" for the symbolic link in order to make it easy for
userspace to find the i2c adapter

drm: Include ddc adapter pointer in struct drm_connector
drm/exynos: Provide ddc symlink in connector's sysfs
