As the patchset improves many things, I would like to point here that
there are still issues with mode probing at least in case of panels.
Panels in general does not provide discrete list of supported modes, but
they provide list of supported mode ranges (named display_timings), at
the moment this is only addressed in drm_panel_funcs::get_timings, but
drm core does not use it at all.
Currently most of the panel drivers advertises only fixed list of
arbitrary chosen modes, and if bridge/connector/encoder/crtc does not
support it pipeline does not work, even if slightly different
configuration could work. Of course there are workarounds but maybe it
would be good to replace drm_connector::modes with drm_connector::timings.
This way set of valid timings of the whole pipeline will be intersection
of sets of valid timings of every component of the pipeline - quite
straightforward and simple construct.

As this is just an idea which came to me during patchset review, it is
not backed by any code, but maybe it can be interesting for quick
brainstorm.

Andrzej
