Thank you for this insight, indeed the bridge dw_mipi_dsi_bind()
is clunky and we're making it even more so by possibly
re-inventing drm_bridge_connector_init() with it in a way which
can't work (well it does work but can lead to those nasty
multiple-encoder corner-cases you mention).

I'll address this before posting v9, to try to move to
of_drm_find_bridge() and remove dw_mipi_dsi_bind().
