[PATCH] drm/i915: Don't send MST hotplugs until after resume

From: Lyude Paul

Turns out we are sending a lot more hotplug events then we need, and
this is causing some pretty serious issues. Currently, we call
intel_dp_mst_resume() in i915_drm_resume() well before we have any sort
of hotplugging setup. This is a pretty big problem, because in practice
it will generally result in throwing the power domain refcounts out of

For instance: On my T480s, removing a previously connected topology
before the system finishes resuming causes
drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event() to be called before HPD is setup again,
which causes us to do a connector reprobe, which then causes
intel_dp_detect() to be called on all DP devices -including- the eDP
display. From there, intel_dp_detect() is run on the eDP display which
triggers DPCD transactions. Those DPCD transactions then cause us to
call edp_panel_vdd_on(), which then causes us to grab an additional
wakeref to the relevant power wells (PORT_DDI_A_IO on this machine).
>From there, this wakeref is never released which then causes the next
suspend/resume cycle to entirely fail due to the hardware not being
powered off correctly.

This sucks really badly, and I don't see any decent way to actually fix
this in intel_dp_detect() easily. Additionally, I don't even think it'd
be worth the time now since we're not expecting to handle any kind of
connector reprobing at the point in which we call intel_dp_mst_resume(),
but we also can't move intel_dp_mst_resume() any higher in the resume
process since MST topologies need to be resumed before
intel_display_resume() is called.

However, there's a light at the end of the tunnel! After reading through
a lot of code dozens of times, it occurred to me that we -never-
actually need to send hotplug events when calling
drm_dp_mst_topology_mgr_set_mst() since we send hotplug events in
drm_dp_destroy_connector_work(). Imagine that!

So, since we only seem to call intel_dp_mst_check_status() to disable
MST on the encoder in question and then send a hotplug, get rid of this
and instead just disable MST mode when a hub fails in
intel_dp_mst_resume(). From there, drm_dp_destroy_connector_work() will
eventually send the hotplug event.
