Subject: [PATCH RFC v2 0/6] ARM: qcom: initial Nexus 5 display support

Here is a patch series that adds initial display support for the LG
Nexus 5 (hammerhead) phone. It's not fully working so that's why some
of these patches are RFC until we can get it fully working.

The phones boots into terminal mode, however there is a several second
(or more) delay when writing to tty1 compared to when the changes are
actually shown on the screen. The following errors are in dmesg:

    [drm:drm_atomic_helper_wait_for_dependencies] *ERROR* [CRTC:49:crtc-0] flip_done timed out
    [drm:drm_atomic_helper_wait_for_dependencies] *ERROR* [PLANE:32:plane-0] flip_done timed out

I can get the text console to work with a 4.17 kernel with this patch plus about a dozen or more
other patches that have been mainlined since that release.

I'm new to the DRM subsystem and continuing to dig into the issue,
however I'd appreciate any suggestions. I suspect the issue lies
somewhere in the second patch in this series.

Changes since v1:
- Shortened problem description above. I'll reply to this email and send
  a full dmesg with the boot log with debugging turned on.
- Dropped patch 'fix null pointer dereference in
- New patch: Remove resv fields from msm_gem_object struct that was
  incorrectly being referenced by the prepare_fb callbacks.
- Add drm_plane_enable_fb_damage_clips() to plane init for mdp4, mdp5,
  and dpu1.
- Add Linus Walleij's reviewed-by to patches 3-6
