[PATCH 0/2] drm: connector firmware nodes

From: Heikki Krogerus

If the system firmware supplies device nodes representing the
display connectors on integrated video hardware, those nodes should
probable always be associated with the display connector entries
(struct drm_connector).

With the USB Type-C DisplayPort alt mode, we will need a way to inform
the correct drm connector entry about HPD IRQ, lane counts and other
details. In ACPI (and most likely in DT too) the device node
representing a DisplayPort behind USB Type-C connector should have a
reference to the device node representing the USB Type-C connector (or
vise versa). Once we have associated the DP connector device nodes
with the drm connector entries, we can use those references to find
the correct drm connector that the information the USB Type-C drivers
are sending is meant for.

Because I think the connector firmware nodes should be associated with
the connector entries in any case (those nodes do seem to be supplying
the connectors all kinds of resources, not only references to other
components), I'm proposing this now instead of waiting for the USB
Type-C patches.
