FWIW I don't know anything about this bug. I just hit it while
getting omapdrm working on n950 and ported this over from omapfb.

To be honest I haven't worked on this for some time. From some
comments on the patchset I think the biggest issue is, that omapdrm
does not use generic panel drivers and cannot easily use the
mipi_dsi_driver_register. I simply did not have enough time to
implement such a huge change.

I guess a first step is Peter Ujfalusi's series:
