This is already the case. You currently cannot hotplug a drm_bridge,
everything must be present. I don't think it makes sense to change that
until we have physically hotpluggable drm_bridges in real hardware. I
definitely don't want to refcount stuff to work around driver load
bonghits on DT platforms, because refcounting is way too hard to get right
:-)

Afaik there's out-of-tree patches to solve 99% of the driver load fun on
DT platforms, but because it's not a 100% solution it's blocked since
forever.
