I understand rationales behind this patch, but it is another step into
making drm_dev one big driver with subcomponents, where drm will work
only if every subcomponent is working/loaded. Do we need to go this way?
In case of many platforms such approach results in display turned on
very late on boot for example due to late initialization of some
regulator exposed by some i2c device, which is used by hdmi bridge. And
this hdmi bridge is just to provide alternative(rarely used) display
path, the main display path would work anyway.

So the main question to drm maintainers is about evolution of bridges,
if drm_bridges should become mandatory components of drm device or they
could be added/removed dynamically?

Regards
Andrzej
