Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 09/28] drm/amd/display: Add link_rate quirk for Apple 15" MBP 2017
Date
From: Mario Kleiner <mario.kleiner.de@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit dec9de2ada523b344eb2428abfedf9d6cd0a0029 ]

This fixes a problem found on the MacBookPro 2017 Retina panel:

The panel reports 10 bpc color depth in its EDID, and the
firmware chooses link settings at boot which support enough
bandwidth for 10 bpc (324000 kbit/sec aka LINK_RATE_RBR2
aka 0xc), but the DP_MAX_LINK_RATE dpcd register only reports
2.7 Gbps (multiplier value 0xa) as possible, in direct
contradiction of what the firmware successfully set up.

This restricts the panel to 8 bpc, not providing the full
color depth of the panel on Linux <= 5.5. Additionally, commit
'4a8ca46bae8a ("drm/amd/display: Default max bpc to 16 for eDP")'
introduced into Linux 5.6-rc1 will unclamp panel depth to
its full 10 bpc, thereby requiring a eDP bandwidth for all
modes that exceeds the bandwidth available and causes all modes
to fail validation -> No modes for the laptop panel -> failure
to set any mode -> Panel goes dark.

This patch adds a quirk specific to the MBP 2017 15" Retina
panel to override reported max link rate to the correct maximum
of 0xc = LINK_RATE_RBR2 to fix the darkness and reduced display
precision.

Please apply for Linux 5.6+ to avoid regressing Apple MBP panel
support.
