This is actually a _very_ important point. Changing the function of
mdvi when it's used in multiple places throughout the driver is not on -
it's too big a change:

/*check csc whether needed activated in HDMI mode */
cscon = (is_color_space_conversion(hdmi) &&

inv_val |= (vmode->mdvi ?

if (hdmi->cable_plugin && !hdmi->hdmi_data.video_mode.mdvi)

It's unclear what the effect would be to change the meaning of mdvi
from "this is a CEA mode" to "the attached device is DVI" in all these
locations, and it's just not on to do this in a patch which merely

If the monitor support audio, so we should support audio for it, even if
the display resolution is No-CEA mode.

In other words, doesn't even describe this change.

In any case, this patch has been dropped from more recent audio driver

So, what I'd like to see is a patch series which starts with the change
below, and builds on that, with explainations why each change is needed.
This is important, as this is shared IP, and we need to make sure that
we don't regress non-Rockchip users of this IP. I'll try and do some
work in this area if nothing crops up in the next month.
