Still missing a bunch of driver pieces, so I haven't yet pushed any of
this upstream.

But if you're interested you can find some work-in-progress here:

Well, it's expected that the connectors aren't panels...

How will I be able to distinguish this from "the eDP panel is not yet
probed"? Unless we first implement the rest of this suggestion to make
sure drm_of_find_panel_or_bridge() has something to find in both cases.

This is rather far from how I do handle USB, and its HPD interrupts
today. But perhaps I'm missing something there...

Let me get that patch on the list as well then.
