In theory we could have another HDMI-to-something bridge connected to
the ADV7511 output, and that bridge could create a connector. However,
before commit 14b3cdbd0e5b the adv7511 driver didn't try to attach to
the next bridge, so it's clear that no platform support in mainline had
such a setup. It should be safe to set DRM_BRIDGE_ATTACH_NO_CONNECTOR
unconditionally here.

That's the recommended way for new drivers. Using the
drm_bridge_connector helper handles all this for you.

No, that would violate the basic principle of not peeking into the DT of
devices you know nothing about. The display engine driver can't walk the
pipeline in DT and expect to understand all the DT nodes on the path,
and what their properties mean.

What KMS drivers should do is to use the drm_bridge_connector helper.
Calling drm_bridge_connector_init() will create a connector for a chain
of bridges. The KMS driver should then attach to the first bridge with
DRM_BRIDGE_ATTACH_NO_CONNECTOR, unconditionally.
