[PATCH 4.19 74/75] drm: add fallback override/firmware EDID modes workaround

commit 48eaeb7664c76139438724d520a1ea4a84a3ed92 upstream.

We've moved the override and firmware EDID (simply "override EDID" from
now on) handling to the low level drm_do_get_edid() function in order to
transparently use the override throughout the stack. The idea is that
you get the override EDID via the ->get_modes() hook.

Unfortunately, there are scenarios where the DDC probe in drm_get_edid()
called via ->get_modes() fails, although the preceding ->detect()

In the case reported by Paul Wise, the ->detect() hook,
intel_crt_detect(), relies on hotplug detect, bypassing the DDC. In the
case reported by Ilpo JÃrvinen, there is no ->detect() hook, which is
interpreted as connected. The subsequent DDC probe reached via
->get_modes() fails, and we don't even look at the override EDID,
resulting in no modes being added.

Because drm_get_edid() is used via ->detect() all over the place, we
can't trivially remove the DDC probe, as it leads to override EDID
effectively meaning connector forcing. The goal is that connector
forcing and override EDID remain orthogonal.

Generally, the underlying problem here is the conflation of ->detect()
and ->get_modes() via drm_get_edid(). The former should just detect, and
the latter should just get the modes, typically via reading the EDID. As
long as drm_get_edid() is used in ->detect(), it needs to retain the DDC
probe. Or such users need to have a separate DDC probe step first.

The EDID caching between ->detect() and ->get_modes() done by some
drivers is a further complication that prevents us from making
drm_do_get_edid() adapt to the two cases.

Work around the regression by falling back to a separate attempt at
getting the override EDID at drm_helper_probe_single_connector_modes()
level. With a working DDC and override EDID, it'll never be called; the
override EDID will come via ->get_modes(). There will still be a failing
DDC probe attempt in the cases that require the fallback.

- Call drm_connector_update_edid_property (Paul)
- Update commit message about EDID caching (Daniel)
