Somewhere on the pixel path (between the display controller and the
DSI) there is a block that inverts the polarity. I can't remember
exactly what was the role of this block, but the polarity is inverted
when eLCDIF is used in combination with the DSI.
If you take a look at my DSI driver from NXP releases (I guess you have
them), you will see there is a hack in mode_fixup:

unsigned int *flags = &mode->flags;
if (dsi->sync_pol {
*flags |= DRM_MODE_FLAG_PHSYNC;
*flags |= DRM_MODE_FLAG_PVSYNC;
*flags &= ~DRM_MODE_FLAG_NHSYNC;
*flags &= ~DRM_MODE_FLAG_NVSYNC;
} else {
*flags &= ~DRM_MODE_FLAG_PHSYNC;
*flags &= ~DRM_MODE_FLAG_PVSYNC;
*flags |= DRM_MODE_FLAG_NHSYNC;
*flags |= DRM_MODE_FLAG_NVSYNC;
}

I know it's not clean, but it works for now. You can try this in your
driver and see if it helps.
These days I will also take your nwl-dsi driver and test it, and also
add support for bridge and eLCDIF to see if I can make it work.

Best regards,
Robert
