The commit message here leaves figuring out why we need this to the
reader. Reading ahead the reasons seems to be to roll out bridge->dev
setting for everyone, so that we can set the device_link. Please explain
that in the commit message so the patch is properly motivated.

Please also sprinkle some links to this new function to relevant places,
I'd add at least:

"Drivers should call drm_bridge_init() first." to the kerneldoc for
drm_bridge_add. drm_bridge_add should also mention drm_bridge_remove as
the undo function.

And perhaps a longer paragraph to &struct drm_bridge:

"Bridge drivers should call drm_bridge_init() to initialized a bridge
driver, and then register it with drm_bridge_add().

"Users of bridges link a bridge driver into their overall display output
pipeline by calling drm_bridge_attach()."

Given that the goal here is to get bridge->dev set up, why not

WARN_ON(!dev);
bridge->dev = dev;

That should help us to really move forward with all this.
