I think the panel is wrapped into next_bridge here,

if (panel) {
    dsi->next_bridge = devm_drm_panel_bridge_add(dev, panel);

so the next_bridge is a panel_bridge, in its attach function
panel_bridge_attach(),
according to the flag DRM_BRIDGE_ATTACH_NO_CONNECTOR, if not exist,
it would create connector and attach connector to panel.

I'm not sure this flag would exist or not, but for both case, it's strange.
If exist, you create connector in this patch but no where to attach
connector to panel.
If not exist, the next_brige would create one connector and this brige
would create another connector.

I think in your case, mtk_dsi does not directly connect to a panel, so
I need a exact explain. Or someone could test this on a
directly-connect-panel platform.
