Hi Sandy,

trying to move this forward a bit :-)

I think the basic-issue Rob was pointing out is that the devicetree
describes hardware blocks and not the software representation.

And the rgb output is not a separate block, but instead just a property
of the vop itself, hence should possibly not have a separate "device".

As I'm currently tinkering with rk3188 display support [0] - which only has
rgb output at all - I modified your patch a bit to to showcase how that
could look [1], where the soc vop struct simply has a feature flag
indicating indicating a raw rgb output and the rgb driver then
looks for bridges in the vop endpoints to distinguish them from
soc-internals output encoders.

Let me know what you think :-)
