Where is this DT? Is it in the kernel tree?

That's "good" right?

I'd like to create a bridge, not panel, for USB connectors, so that we
can push sideband HPD signaling through to the DP driver. But either way
this should work, right? If drm_of_find_panel_or_bridge() returns
-EPROBE_DEFER, then assume the connector is DP. Otherwise if there's a
valid pointer then treat it as eDP. We can't go too crazy though because
once we attach a bridge we're assuming eDP which may not actually be
true.

If we make a bridge for type-C USB connectors then we'll be able to use
the drm_bridge_connector code to automatically figure out the connector
type (eDP vs. DP vs. whatever else is chained onto the end of the DP
connector). That would require updating the bridge connector code to
treat DP as a connector type though. And then the eDP path would need to
be handled when there's no bridge really involved, like in your case
where the eDP hardware is directly connected to the eDP panel.

In this case I think we're supposed to make a bridge in this DP driver
itself that does pretty basic stuff and assumes the connector is eDP or
DP based on the hardware type it is. Then if we wire a type-c connector
up to the eDP hardware the eDP bridge we make in this driver will see a
type-c connector that makes a bridge saying "I'm a DP connector" and the
drm_bridge_connector code will look at the last bridge in the chain to
see that it's actually a DP connector.
