All those patches were build tested, so yep

So the structure layout now is that vc4_hdmi embeds vc4_hdmi_encoder as
encoder. So &hdmi->encoder is a pointer to vc4_hdmi_encoder.
vc4_hdmi_encoder's base is since that patch a struct vc4_encoder. and
vc4_encoder's base is a drm_encoder.
so encoder being a drm_encoder is correct there.
However, drm_encoder's base is drm_mode_object that does have a type
field, which is an uint32_t, which will accept a VC4_ENCODER_TYPE_* just
Now, drm_encoder_init will then kick in and call drm_mode_object_add
which will override it to a proper value and since the clock select bit
in the PV is the same for both HDMI0 and HDMI1, everything works just
Good catch, I'll fix it. And I guess it's a good indication we don't
need a separate HDMI0 and HDMI1 encoder type.

Thanks for your review!
