SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/5] drm/bridge: add encoder support to specify bridge input format
Hi Neil,

Thank you for the patch.

I would return an int to propagate the failure reason upstream. It will
reach the commit tail handler in any case, so will be dropped there, but
could help debugging issues if we print it in the right place.

You don't need a const here.

I don't think this will scale. It's not that uncommon for bridges to
change the format (most likely converting from YUV to RGB or the other
way around, or reducing the number of bits per sample) and the encoding.
We thus can't propagate it from bridge to bridge and expect that to
work.

At the very least, the bridge should report its output bus format and
encoding, to be applied to the next bridge, but this won't allow
checking if the configuration can be applied ahead of time, resulting in
possible failures of a commit tail handler. I wonder if this wouldn't be
a good time to introduce bridge states...
