I'm not really understanding what you're trying to say here.

I think since we touch this, maybe better to revamp it complete. The best
way to handle all this is by registering a struct drm_client, since that
provides the &drm_client_funcs.hotplug callback. Also for fbdev support
drivers shouldn't even use that, but instead use the
drm_fbdev_generic_setup() function, which takes care of everything.

I think we can also remove the FIXME below, since with the drm_client
infrastructure and the generic fbdev emulation we've resolved this all
very neatly now.

Can you please respin with my suggestions taking into account somehow?

Thanks, Daniel
