Hi Hans.

I would like to come back to this thread.

I took a peek at the changes in
https://git.linuxtv.org/hverkuil/media_tree.git/log/?h=cec-conn. Do I
understand it correctly, that the above problem is addressed there by
unregistering an adapter in cec_notifier_conn_unregister (which will
result in /dev/cecX node going away)? I wonder to what degree this
solves the problem of HDMI and CEC drivers being loaded and unloaded
independently. It seems that in cases where HDMI driver is unloaded
and then loaded again, counterintuitively, the /dev/cecX might not
come back again, is this right, or am I missing something? Also, is it
guaranteed that adapter drivers won't try to access an adapter once it
gets removed by cec_notifier_conn_unregister?

Thank you.
