Sorry, but I'm annoyed with this - the impression being given was that
I was holding up this patch by not testing it on Armada, and I brought
up the issue about registration at the beginning of this.

Now we're _just_ finding out that there are drivers where removing the
connector registration in tda998x causes them to break? It's a bit
late to be checking your own drivers when you've been chasing me...

Sorry, but it sounds like we're not ready to make this change - and as
it's the very last day that changes will appear in linux-next prior to
the merge window (assuming Linus releases 4.8 on Sunday), I'd suggest
holding off until after the merge window is over, so we can get some
testing with these other two drivers with this change in place.
