Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/3] dt-bindings: Add doc for the ingenic-drm driver

Hi Paul.

Good to see work migrating fbdev => drm.

Following comments is based on experience while working on migrating
another driver from fbdev => drm.

The fbdev way of doing this was to hardcode register setttings.
In the drm world we read the configuration of the panel and let
this decide the actual configuration.

Note that no drm drivers supports stn displays and that there
is really no use for this these days. So you can skip the STN parts.

Also the modern way to specify a panel in the DT is using OF graph bindings.
You can find many examples how to do this.

I was there with the atmel LCDC driver (not in the kernel yet),
and had some challenges with this.
