Indeed.

Ok for chaining the format_set, I thought about it when writing it.

And what if a added a second call drm_bridge_format_check() to check
if a future format_set chaining would work ? then we could either do the
format_set, try another or fallback to a known default format setup.

Would that be sufficient ?

Bridge states would be interesting, but it's really out of the scope of
our current needs in term of bridge changes.

IMHO we can start with format_check/format_set and switch to bridges states
when we have a sufficient use case needing a finer handling of states.
