All this seems to make sense for both eDP and "native" DP.

But I don't have a DisplayPort connector.

I have a USB-C connector, that upon determining that it's time to play
DisplayPort will use the typec_mux abstraction to tell someone on the
other side of the of_graph about DisplayPort events (HPD).

So where would I put this drm_bridge in the USB-C case?

I don't see that it fits in the Type-C side of things and putting it on
the DP side would leave us with exactly the problem we have here. So we
would have to put a fake "DP connector" inbetween the DP node and the
Type-C controller?


For reference, this is how I thought one is supposed to tie the Type-C
controller to the display driver:
https://lore.kernel.org/all/20211005022451.2037405-1-bjorn.andersson@linaro.org/


I'm afraid I must be missing something in Laurent and yours proposal
(although I think Laurent is talking about the native DP case?).

Bjorn
