Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the quick review.

Ack, but with one caveat: bridge->dev is the struct drm_device that is
the bridge client, we need to add a bridge->device (patch 29 in this
series) which is the struct device that will manage the bridge lifetime.

Will do.

See above struct device vs struct drm_device. I add a

bridge->device = dev;

in patch 29, which takes care of that. I skipped the warn since
there's a dereference of dev, but I now realized it's behind CONFIG_OF,
so I'll add it in for v2.

Yes, 'device' isn't the best of names, but I took Russell's patch
almost as-is, I didn't have any better ideas for bikeshedding.
