Let me jump into the discussion, and sorry if my question is silly because I'm
just starting to look at this code.

IMO we should consider all the cases to find a proper fix on all this, and if
MDP uses also mmsys clocks this approach will not work. I think the main problem
here and the big question is what exactly is the MMSYS block, is an independent
clock controller that provides clocks to DRM and other blocks? or is hardly tied
to the DRM block in some way?

Could you give us a block schema on how the things are interconnected?

If is an independent clock controller I think there was a mistake when the first
drm driver was pushed by using the compatible = "mediatek,mt8173-mmsys" as id
for that driver.

Thanks,
Enric
