The latter. Look at drm_connector_attach_*() functions in
drm_connector.c. i915 (or any other driver) can create and attach the
property as needed. drm_atomic_connector_{get,set}_property in
drm_atomic_uapi.c need to handle the properties, but *only* to get/set
the value in drm_connector_state, nothing more. How that value is
actually used is up to the drivers, but the userspace interface will be
the same instead of being driver specific.

Also, this would be the part that's done in drm core level.

Look at, say, drm_connector_attach_scaling_mode_property(). In the
getter/setter code it'll just read/change state->scaling_mode. You can
use the value in encoder ->enable, ->disable, and ->update_pipe
hooks. Enable should enable the privacy screen if desired, disable
should probably unconditionally disable the privacy screen while
disabling the display, and update should just change the state according
to the value. Update is called if there isn't a full modeset. (Scaling
mode is a bit more indirect than that, affecting other things in the
encoder ->compute_config hook, leading to similar effects.)

Ville, anything I missed?
