I've posted a patch series to convert to DRM_BRIDGE_ATTACH_NO_CONNECTOR
yesterday (and have CC'ed you), but I've overlooked this particular
problem :-S

You can't get the connector in the .enable() operation, but you can get
it in .atomic_enable(), with
drm_atomic_get_new_connector_for_encoder(). This being said, it's
probably not the right option.

What matters here isn't the bpc for the connector, but the format
expected by the next bridge in the chain. drm_bridge_funcs has two
operations, .atomic_get_output_bus_fmts() and
.atomic_get_input_bus_fmts(), to negotiate that format along a chain of
bridges. The panel bridge driver (drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/panel.c)
doesn't implement those operations, and neither does
display-connector.c, so that may be what we should start with.

You're right, .mode_valid() shouldn't do that.
