Subject[PATCH v3 0/8] Add dual-LVDS panel support to EK874
Dear All,

this series adds support for dual-LVDS panel IDK-2121WR
from Advantech:

V3 approaches the problem in a completely different way, we now
have two new properties to mark the ports in the DT as receiving
even pixels and odd pixels: dual-lvds-even-pixels and dual-lvds-odd-pixels,
which means device drivers should not use bridge specific or panel
specific dual_link flags. Also, in this case the DT describes the
connection fully.

In order for the solution to be generic, I have exported a new helper
(drm_of_lvds_get_dual_link_configuration) to walk the device tree,
and figure out if the connection is dual-LVDS. The same helper gives
information about the configuration of the connection. If Px is connected
to a port expecting even pixels and Py is connected to a port expecting
odd pixels, then the helper returns DRM_LVDS_DUAL_LINK_EVEN_ODD_PIXELS
(like in the example below), otherwise it returns

-------- dual-lvds-even-pixels --------
| |---- ----| |
| | Px |---------------------->| Pn | |
| |---- ----| |
| SOURCE | dual-lvds-odd-pixels | SINK |
| |---- ----| |
| | Py |---------------------->| Pm | |
| |---- ----| |
-------- --------

The device driver for the encoder then will work out if with the current
wiring the pixels need swapping or not.

The same solution works for both panels and bridges.

Since the DT describes the connection fully, driver
drivers/gpu/drm/panel/panel-lvds.c works out-of-the-box, no changes
required, however, this implementation opens up a problem with the
Driver drivers/gpu/drm/panel/panel-lvds.c can still be pleased by
a port node, but also by a ports node.
I have created Documentation/devicetree/bindings/display/bus-timings/lvds.yaml
with the idea of including it from panels and bridges dt-bindings
supporting dual-LVDS (and of course the dt-bindings for the specific
devices should say which port should be marked as what), but file
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/display/panel/lvds.yaml formally
requires property "port", while with this implementation it should require
OneOf "port" and "ports", and unfortunately I can't seem to find a neat way
aroud that, other than creating a new compatible string
(e.g. "panel-dual-lvds"), a new dt-binding document for it, and of course adding
support for the new compatible string to drivers/gpu/drm/panel/panel-lvds.c.
As a result, this series is missing (at least) a patch necessary to fully
document the new implementation within

Rob, do you have any suggestions? Do you think this idea works ok from a
documentation point of view? By the way, I don't really know what I am doing
with the yaml dt-bindings, I hope you won't be horrified by this series :-P

I hope I was able to deliver the concept clearly, if not please just ask.

Comments are very much appreciated.
