Colin's code is right.
Following code I copied from linux-next, and I checked drm-misc, the
code are same.
struct komeda_pipeline *slave = kcrtc->slave;
//---- First initialization.
struct completion *disable_done = &crtc->state->commit->flip_done;
bool needs_phase2 = false;
DRM_DEBUG_ATOMIC("CRTC%d_DISABLE: active_pipes: 0x%x, affected: 0x%x\n",
if (slave && has_bit(slave->id, old_st->active_pipes))
if (has_bit(master->id, old_st->active_pipes))
needs_phase2 = komeda_pipeline_disable(master, old->state);
//---- Secondary initialization.
disable_done = (needs_phase2 || crtc->state->active) ?
NULL : &crtc->state->commit->flip_done;
//--- First using is here.
/* wait phase 1 disable done */
So the first initialization with the delcaration is unnecessary.
And I also checked our internal testing branch which actually doesn't have
the first initialization. seems somethings wrong when lowry submit this to
Thanks for the fix. I'll push it to drm-misc-fixes
