SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] drm: rcar-du: Enable alpha property on primary planes

Hi Kieran,

Thank you for the patch.

As mentioned in the cover letter, both patches in this series fix the issue at
hand. The first patch is more generic as it will fix it for all drivers, while
this patch is specific to the R-Car DU driver. It however makes sense to merge
it, as it adds alpha support to the primary plane, which can be useful.

Once the first patch gets merged, the above comment won't be correct anymore.
I wonder whether we shouldn't change the patch description and comment to
focus on usage of the alpha property for primary planes, and not on the bug
fix. What's your opinion ?
