Hi Sam,

Finally finished addressing the things you pointed, except by a few
ones:
	- bridge bindings;
	- use drm_foo() instead of DRM_foo() when possible.

A few answers to some of your comments.

> There is too much unused code present - please delete.

I'll took a look and dropped most of it. I kept just some
code there related to an optional IOMMU support. The code
there is commented out because they depend on a driver that,
after some upstream discussions, I'm opting to not sending
it. Basically, there are better ways to support the integrated
MMU for the GPU core.

I'added some FIXME and commented out the code, as I intend
to take another look on it in the future. Not top priority,
as the driver works without it, but it could affect driver's
performance.

Ok. There aren't much reported by checkpatch, as I did lots of
checkpatch fixes already in this series. I ended keeping
some CamelCase for macros:

	CHECK:CAMELCASE: Avoid CamelCase: <SMMU_SMRx_P>
	#143: FILE: drivers/staging/hikey9xx/gpu/kirin970_dpe_reg.h:143:
	+#define SMMU_SMRx_P	(0x10000)

and a few other things that, IMHO, making checkpatch happier
would make things worse for humans ;-)

Ok.

There used to have a separate panel driver. The DRM driver has
support for it, probably using some older binding model (although
I converted some things that don't work on upstream Kernels anymore).

The old panel driver is there at the history (patch 01/49), but
a later patch drops it. The main thing is that Hikey 970 board
doesn't come with any panel. Maybe are out there some daughter
boards providing a panel display, but I was unable to find it.

So, I ended dropping the panel driver, but keeping the main
driver's code to handle it, as someone could find it useful.

The above are left-overs. I'm dropping everything, keeping just
DRM_HISI_KIRIN9XX. The driver now has support for both Kirin 960 and 970
at the same time, without needing an extra Kconfig.

It used to be forbidden. Linus changed his mind about c99 comments
some time ago. It is now allowed. More than that, using c99 comments is 
now mandatory for SPDX on c files.

In any case, changing to /* */ is as easy as running this script:

	for i in drivers/staging/hikey9xx/gpu/*.[ch]; do perl -ne 'if (! m,// SPDX,) { s,//\s*(.*),/* \1 */,; }; print $_' -i $i; done

As I also prefer not using c99 comments, I applied a cleanup patch.

> Some of the enums I checked are not used.

Yeah, based on the size of the header files, when compared with
the size of the code, I suspect that lots of things there won't be
used. Cleaning this could take some time and may end removing
some bits that we could need in the future in order to address
existing problems at the driver. 

So, I opted preserving them, at least on this initial
patchset. I intend to do a further cleanup when trying to
merge this driver with the one for Kirin 620. On a side node,
currently, I don't have a Kirin 620 board. So, I'm postponing
such task until I get one such boards, as I'm not willing
to take the risk of changing it without being able to test.

> If their members are used then consider to use the enum

Yeah, it makes sense to use enum for type consistency.

I would prefer to do such kind of cleanup later on, together
with the attempt of having a single driver for all Kirin
supported DRM, as this is something that I'll need to revisit
when trying to merge the code.

Yeah, getting clock lines can fail. I was unable to find dev_probe_err(),
at least on Kernel 5.9-rc1. I saw this comment:

	https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/3/6/356

It sounds it didn't reach upstream. Anyway, I add error handling for the
the clk_get calls:

	ctx->dss_pri_clk = devm_clk_get(dev, "clk_edc0");
	ret = PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO(ctx->dss_pri_clk);
	if (ret == -EPROBE_DEFER) {
		return ret;
	} else if (ret) {
		DRM_ERROR("failed to parse dss_pri_clk: %d\n", ret);
		return ret;
	}

This should be able to detect deferred probe, plus to warn
about other errors.

PS.: I'll be changing DRM_foo() to drm_foo() on a separate
patchset, after finishing the remaining code changes.

That's a very good question. Hard to answer right, as last time
I checked, DPMS suspend/resume are currently broken. 

I need to re-test it, but it has been hard to work on that part,
because right now there's no USB driver (so, no keyboard/mouse).

I was using x2x to send evdev events to the remote machine, but
I did some changes at the test distro, and this stopped working.

I need to find some other solution to send evdev events to Hikey970
while I don't fix my USB driver port.

So, for now, I prefer keeping those. I'll revisit this before
moving the driver out of staging, as this is one of the current
bugs.

I saw the code at drm_panel. The real issue here is that I can't
test anything related to panel support, as I lack any hardware
for testing. So, there's a high chance I may end breaking
something while trying to do that.

Actually, this device is "hybrid" with regards to bridges.
HDMI uses an external bridge (adv7535), while panel doesn't.

In any case, I would prefer not touching anything related to
the panel. As I mentioned on my other comment, currently
I lack any panels that might work on Hikey 970. So, this is
something I can't test.

Yeah, this was dropped in a patch on this series that it is after the DT
changes.

The PWM and backlight stuff is used by the display panel driver which
came together with the DRM drivers. I dropped it, together with the
parts of the driver which used to call them.
