It's just an idea that we could decide to expose only one or the other
property. It would need to be engineered in code, go through the UAPI
validation with userspace etc. I'm not aware of this being done before
exactly like this, but DRM client caps exist.

Determining "is set" means we would need "unset" value for "preferred
color range". But there is no notion of who set it. If some KMS client
decides to set it, then it will likely remain set, even if you next
start another KMS client who does not use this property - it would just
confuse users when "Broadcast RGB" silently stopped working while it
still exists.

So I don't think this is a good solution.

When considering a new property, what I wrote just earlier fit here:
https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2021-June/312248.html

There are more questions that just what does the limited range actually
mean.

Right, at the very least the current behaviour needs to be documented
before enrolling this property to any more drivers, so that those
drivers can then be reviewed to work the same way.

You notice I didn't actually answer your question 1 or 2. I don't know.
Going with 1 is easy compared to 2, even if the names are awkward but
it technically shouldn't cause any problems. 2 may or may not be
better, and until we have answers to which design is better, it's maybe
best to leave option 2 alone?


Thanks,
