I am not familiar with drm arch that well.
Can you elaborate more how bridge can work in this case?
When dp driver received plug-in interrupt, it read panel capability dpcd
and start link training with link rate specified at dpcd.
How bridge can propagate link rate (limited by redriver) before link
training happen?
