As the eDP panel is assumed to be always connected, just enabling the IRQ_HPD is sufficient.

The REPLUG is enabled or unmasked along with IRQ_HPD in code.

I did not remove the REPLUG event support for eDP so that we have an option to see if the eDP panel
can undergo a short disconnect/connect cycle after pre-enable (while the panel power is enabled).

REPLUG can be generated for eDP if,
a) the panel power turns off and on OR
b) the sink itself issues a fast disconnect-connect.

REPLUG event initiated by sink is rare and we observed it only during the DP compliance test.

Some more information on HPD events generated by the source:

Replug interrupt is something our controller HW supports and not part of the DP/eDP specification.

The programmed values for HPD on the HW controller indicates the following:

1. The HOTPLUG interrupt will be generated if the HPD line is continuously high for 100ms.
2. Similarly, UNPLUG interrupt will be generated when the HPD line transitions from high to low and remains low for 100ms.
3. IRQ_HPD will be generated when the HPD line transitions from high to low and remains low for less than 2ms.
4. REPLUG will be generated if the HPD line remains low for more than 2ms but less than 100ms.

According to the DP spec, replug event should be considered as a disconnect and then connect.

To answer your question, I did not remove REPLUG support for eDP because I felt it will not affect the eDP normal functioning in anyway.

Thank you,
