You mean you get no interrupt when HPD status changes? Hans can
answer this better but then you will need to invalidate the cec
physical address yourself because right now its invalidated in
the dw-hdmi irq handler (see dw_hdmi_irq()).

I don't know if you can use an empty platform device created with
platform_device_alloc(). Perhaps it would be better fix this in
the dw-hdmi driver. I see two solutions:
- Either you return the dw-hdmi private structure in the bind
callback, store it and pass it in the unbind
- Or, you pass your own private data to the dw-hdmi bind, the
dw-hdmi stores it and you just create a public function in the
dw-hdmi driver called like dw_hdmi_get_auxdata(struct device
*dev) which returns your private data.
I think first option is nice, maybe anyone else can suggest
