SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 3/3] drm/i915: Add support for integrated privacy screens
Thanks Jani so much for the detailed explanation.

I was able to write the code for this, but I am facing one problem, see below.

Understood, done.

Yup.

For my testing purposes, I'm testing this using the proptest utility
in our distribution (I think from
https://github.com/CPFL/drm/blob/master/tests/proptest/proptest.c). I
notice that when I change the value of the property from userspace,
even though the drm_connector_state->privacy_screen_status gets
updated and reflects the change, the encoder->update_pipe() is not
getting called. Just wanted to ask if this is expected since you seem
to imply this update_pipe() might *not* get called if there *is* a
full modeset? (What is the hook that gets called for a full modeset
where i915 driver should commit this property change to the hardware?)

Thanks & Best Regards,

Rajat
