The problem would be that there is no drm bridge maintainer. I think the most suitable person as the maintainer would be Ajay Kumar who is an author of drm bridge framework.
Of course, I could take them and have pull-request again. But it seems a little late. Dave had already pull-request.

To Ajay,
How about adding you as a drm bridge maintainer? DRM SoC driver maintainers would need a person who can manage the drm bridge relevant pathes.
