Sorry - yeah I think reverting is probably best at this point to avoid
breaking in-tree platforms.
It's a shame though that there is a built-in incompatibility within the
tree between drivers. The way that the generic Synopsys DSI host driver
probes is currently incompatible with the ADV7533 (hence the patch),
other DSI host drivers are now compatible with the ADV7533 but break
when we change it to probe in a similar way to panel drivers.

Maybe this would work, but how do we know that the list "msm or kirin"
is exhaustive to cope with all platforms? It seems to me the built in
incompatibility between DSI hosts needs to be resolved really rather
than trying to work around it in the ADV7533 driver (and any other DSI
bus device that falls into this trap).

Anyway, my platform is out of tree so better to revert my patch and keep
the in-tree platforms working.

Thanks everyone.
