Subject: Re: [PATCH 5/5 v3] drm/bridge: adv7511: Reuse __adv7511_power_on/off() when probing EDID

Hi John,

Thank you for the patch.

regcache_sync() is quite costly as it will write a bunch of registers. 
Wouldn't it be more efficient to only write the registers that are needed for 
EDID access ?
