Subject[PATCH v4 00/24] drm/bridge: Make panel and bridge probe order consistent
Date
Hi,

We've encountered an issue with the RaspberryPi DSI panel that prevented the
whole display driver from probing.

The issue is described in detail in the commit 7213246a803f ("drm/vc4: dsi:
Only register our component once a DSI device is attached"), but the basic idea
is that since the panel is probed through i2c, there's no synchronization
between its probe and the registration of the MIPI-DSI host it's attached to.

We initially moved the component framework registration to the MIPI-DSI Host
attach hook to make sure we register our component only when we have a DSI
device attached to our MIPI-DSI host, and then use lookup our DSI device in our
bind hook.

However, all the DSI bridges controlled through i2c are only registering their
associated DSI device in their bridge attach hook, meaning with our change
above, we never got that far, and therefore ended up in the same situation than
the one we were trying to fix for panels.

The best practice to avoid those issues is to register its functions only after
all its dependencies are live. We also shouldn't wait any longer than we should
to play nice with the other components that are waiting for us, so in our case
that would mean moving the DSI device registration to the bridge probe.

I also had a look at all the DSI hosts, and it seems that exynos, kirin and msm
would be affected by this and wouldn't probe anymore after those changes.
Exynos and kirin seems to be simple enough for a mechanical change (that still
requires to be tested), but the changes in msm seemed to be far more important
and I wasn't confortable doing them.

Let me know what you think,
Maxime

---

Changes from v3:
- Converted exynos and kirin
- Converted all the affected bridge drivers
- Reworded the documentation a bit

Changes from v2:
- Changed the approach as suggested by Andrzej, and aligned the bridge on the
panel this time.
- Fixed some typos

Changes from v1:
- Change the name of drm_of_get_next function to drm_of_get_bridge
- Mention the revert of 87154ff86bf6 and squash the two patches that were
reverting that commit
- Add some documentation
- Make drm_panel_attach and _detach succeed when no callback is there
