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

Hi John,

Thank you for the patch.

That looks good to me. Feel free to still de-duplicate the power on/off code 
if you want (but of course without adding the regcache_sync to the common 
power on function this time).

Please see below for an additional comment.

As powering the device off called regcache_mark_dirty(), this will perform an 
I2C write and cache the value. If we then try to read the EDID a second time 
without going through a full power on/off sequence, I believe that regmap will 
skip the write the second time, as the cache will contain the same value and 
won't be marked as dirty. Should we call regcache_mark_dirty() when powering 
the device down further down this function ?
