[ Upstream commit cc62d98bd56d45de4531844ca23913a15136c05b ]

This reverts commit 211f276ed3d96e964d2d1106a198c7f4a4b3f4c0.

For quite some time, core DRM helpers already ensure that any relevant
connectors/CRTCs/etc. are disabled, as well as their associated
components (e.g., bridges) when suspending the system. Thus,
analogix_dp_bridge_{enable,disable}() already get called, which in turn
call drm_panel_{prepare,unprepare}(). This makes these drm_panel_*()
calls redundant.

Besides redundancy, there are a few problems with this handling:

(1) drm_panel_{prepare,unprepare}() are *not* reference-counted APIs and
are not in general designed to be handled by multiple callers --
although some panel drivers have a coarse 'prepared' flag that mitigates
some damage, at least. So at a minimum this is redundant and confusing,
but in some cases, this could be actively harmful.

(2) The error-handling is a bit non-standard. We ignored errors in
suspend(), but handled errors in resume(). And recently, people noticed
that the clk handling is unbalanced in error paths, and getting *that*
right is not actually trivial, given the current way errors are mostly

(3) In the particular way analogix_dp_{suspend,resume}() get used (e.g.,
in rockchip_dp_*(), as a late/early callback), we don't necessarily have
a proper PM relationship between the DP/bridge device and the panel
device. So while the DP bridge gets resumed, the panel's parent device
(e.g., platform_device) may still be suspended, and so any prepare()
calls may fail.

So remove the superfluous, possibly-harmful suspend()/resume() handling
of panel state.
