Thanks a lot for your review. Do you think that there is something
wrong with patch 7 (DRM) or your doubt is given that the Exynos DRM
driver has been so unstable in the past, enabling could cause more
harm than good?

IMHO enabling the Exynos DRM options in exynos_defconfig was worth the
trouble since a lot of bugs were exposed (and fixed!) while before we
had unnoticed broken code laying around.
