Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 016/167] drm/i915: Fix intel_dp_mst_best_encoder()
From: Lyude Paul <>

[ Upstream commit a9f9ca33d1fe9325f414914be526c0fc4ba5281c ]

Currently, i915 appears to rely on blocking modesets on
no-longer-present MSTB ports by simply returning NULL for
->best_encoder(), which in turn causes any new atomic commits that don't
disable the CRTC to fail. This is wrong however, since we still want to
allow userspace to disable CRTCs on no-longer-present MSTB ports by
changing the DPMS state to off and this still requires that we retrieve
an encoder.

So, fix this by always returning a valid encoder regardless of the state
of the MST port.

Changes since v1:
- Remove mst atomic helper, since this got replaced with a much simpler
