Subject: [RFC][PATCH] drm/bridge: adv7511: Re-write the i2c address as it may have been lost

Laurent: Would something like the following be preferred? Seems
to work as well for me..


I've found that by just turning the chip on and off via the
POWER_DOWN register, I end up getting i2c_transfer errors on

Investigating further, it seems some of the register state in
the regmap cache is somehow getting lost, likely as the device
registers were reset during power off.

Thus this patch simply re-writes the i2c address to the
ADV7511_REG_EDID_I2C_ADDR register to ensure its properly set
before we try to read the EDID data.
