It would be wonderful, for my understanding today, as well as people in
the coming months to be able to search for the callstack etc on the
mailing list, if you could provide some details about the crash.

E.g. a callstack or description of when it happens.

So you have a dp_display_private object with a panel and a connector
allocated, but before you manage to associate the two you get a HPD
event and call this function, so you decide to stitch the two together
just here in some piece of code unrelated to the initialization of your

It sounds like we're lacking synchronization between the initialization
and the HPD interrupts and this would not be the correct solution.
