Hi Laurent,

The mt8173 layout is:

MT8173 HDMI bridge-- hardware mux --- HDMI
|
------------ anx7688
There's a hardware mux that takes mt8173 hdmi as input and has 2
output port: native hdmi and anx7688 bridge.
If gpio is active, we would like it to go to HDMI.

Previous approach is to make hardware mux a generic gpio mux bridge,
but this is probably a very rare use case that is only for
mt8173.(https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/57723AD2.8020806@codeaurora.org/)
We merge the mux and anx7688 to a single bridge and leave this as an
optional feature in this time.

Thanks.
