[PATCH v4 4/5] drm/dp_helper: Perform throw-away read before actual read in drm_dp_dpcd_read()

From: Lyude
Date: Thu Mar 24 2016 - 14:28:01 EST

This is part of a patch series to migrate all of the workarounds for
commonly seen behavior from bad sinks in intel_dp_dpcd_read_wake() to drm's
DP helper.

Some sinks will just return garbage for the first aux tranaction they
receive when coming out of sleep mode, so we need to perform an additional
read before the actual read to workaround this.
