The backlight level of an eDP panel can be controlled through the AUX
channel using DPCD registers of the panel.

The capability for the Source device to adjust backlight characteristics
within the panel, using the Sink device DPCD registers is indicated by
the TCON_BACKLIGHT_ADJUSTMENT_CAPABLE bit in the EDP_GENERAL_CAPABILITY_1
register (DPCD Address 701h, bit0). In this configuration, the eDP TCON
receives the backlight level information from the host, through the AUX
channel.

Anderson's patch series [1] exposed the DDC bus from ti-sn65dsi86 bridge,
that gives an option to move the backlight control out of the bridge and
to create a separate backlight driver.

Changes in v2:
- Created a new DisplayPort aux backlight driver and moved the code from
  drm_dp_aux_backlight.c (v1) to the new driver.
- Removed the changes done in ti-sn65dsi86 bridge. (Rob Herring)

Changes in v3:
- Add missing ';' to fix module compilation (kernel test bot)

Add backlight driver for the panels supporting backlight control
using DPCD registers on the DisplayPort aux channel.

Changes in v2:
- New (most of the code reused from drm_dp_aux_backlight.c of v1)

Changes in v3:
- Add missing ';' to fix module compilation (kernel test bot)

No, please don't do this.

I wrote you last week in reply to v1 why I thought merging this would
not be a good idea [1]. Why have you sent two versions since then
without replying to me, or Cc'ing me or Lyude?

I think it's an even worse idea to merge this to
drivers/video/backlight. With DP AUX backlight you can't pretend it's
just an independent aux interface for backlight without everything else
around it. It's not independent of eDP, and exposing it as a direct
backlight sysfs interface bypasses the encoder.

And it still remains that there is existing DP AUX backlight code in
use, in the tree, with more features than this, with plans and
previously submitted patches to lift from one driver to drm core, and
with patches to add support to another driver.

I don't say this lightly, or very often at all, but,

NAK.


BR,
Jani.

Hi Jani,

Apologies for not acknowledging your comment on v1.
I was looking here [1] for all the comments I would be receiving on
my patches. I was not aware that the comments on the cover letter don't
appear on this page. Also, I completely missed your mail.
I will ensure such omissions don't happen again.

Keeping your comments in mind, I will look into Lyude's series and
work upon my code.

[1] https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/series/89085/

Yours sincerely,
Rajeev

My bot found errors running 'make DT_CHECKER_FLAGS=-m dt_binding_check'
on your patch (DT_CHECKER_FLAGS is new in v5.13):

yamllint warnings/errors:

dtschema/dtc warnings/errors:
Error: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/leds/backlight/dp-aux-backlight.example.dts:22.38-39 syntax error
FATAL ERROR: Unable to parse input tree
make[1]: *** [scripts/Makefile.lib:377: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/leds/backlight/dp-aux-backlight.example.dt.yaml] Error 1
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make: *** [Makefile:1414: dt_binding_check] Error 2

See https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1470203

This check can fail if there are any dependencies. The base for a patch
series is generally the most recent rc1.

If you already ran 'make dt_binding_check' and didn't see the above
error(s), then make sure 'yamllint' is installed and dt-schema is up to
date:

pip3 install dtschema --upgrade

Please check and re-submit.

So the DDC bus is connected to a backlight and also a panel? This 
binding is not reflecting the h/w, but rather what you want for some 
driver.

There's only one thing here and that's an eDP panel which supports 
backlight control via DP aux channel. You can figure all that out from 
the panel's compatible and/or reading the EDID.

I think Rajeev needs to rework everything anyway as per:

https://lore.kernel.org/r/87zgxl5qar.fsf@intel.com

...but you're right that it makes sense not to model the backlight as
a separate node in the device tree. The panel driver can handle
setting up the backlight.

It was not a good idea to create a separate backlight driver and use
ddc-i2c-bus to get access to DP aux. I am working to move the code
to the panel driver and to utilize the new DRM helper functions
(drm_edp_backlight_*) Lyude has added [1].

To use these helper functions, the panel driver should have access to 
the
"struct drm_dp_aux *". The simple-panel has a "ddc-i2c-bus" property
to give the panel access to the DDC bus and is currently being used to
get the EDID from the panel. Can I use the same ddc bus i2c_adapter to 
get
the "struct drm_dp_aux *"?

As per the suggestion [2], I get the "struct drm_dp_aux *" from the
i2c_adapter of ddc bus (maybe I didn't understand the suggestion 
correctly),
and, it turned out, the way I have implemented is not the right way [3].
So, I am afraid to use the same method in the panel driver.

JFYI for anyone who is interested, I will be respinning my patches for adding
backlight helpers very soon since we've got pretty much all of the prep work
for it upstream now

So it's definitely up to maintainers, not me. ...but I guess I would
have expected something like a new property called "ddc-aux-bus". Then
you'd have to create a new API call called something like
"of_find_ddc_aux_adapter_by_node()" that would allow you to find it.

I guess an alternate way to solve this (I'm not totally sure whether
it's better or worse) would be to add a function that would walk up
the chain of parent bridges and ask them for a pointer to the aux bus.
I definitely haven't thought it all the way through, but I'd imagine
something like drm_bridge_chain_get_ddc_aux(). This is _probably_
better than adding the "ddc-aux-bus" property but it assumes that the
aux bus is provided by one of our parents. Hrm, looking at this
briefly, though, I'm not sure how to do it. It doesn't seem possible
to get the parent bridges from the panel structure. Even if you assume
that your parent is wrapping you with a panel_bridge it still doesn't
seem possible?

This probably needs more drm-expertise.

To implement the first suggestion, I can think of the following way
to get the "struct drm_dp_aux" in the panel_simple_probe function:

- Create a new panel-simple DT property "ddc-aux-bus", a phandle to the
platform device that implements the AUX channel.

- Create a global list of drm_dp_aux in drm_dp_helper.c. Initialize list 
head
in drm_dp_aux_init(), add the drm_dp_aux onto the list in 
drm_dp_aux_register().
Similarly, remove the drm_dp_aux from list in drm_dp_aux_unregister().

- Create a new function of_drm_find_dp_aux_by_node() to get the expected
drm_dp_aux from this global list.

Please let me know your views on this implementation.

Below is the summary of the changes in drm dp helper:

---

// drm_dp_helper.h

struct drm_dp_aux {
	...
	struct list_head list;
	...
}

// drm_dp_helper.c

static DEFINE_MUTEX(dp_aux_lock);
static LIST_HEAD(dp_aux_list);

static void drm_dp_aux_add(struct drm_dp_aux *aux)
{
     mutex_lock(&dp_aux_lock);
     list_add_tail(&aux->list, &dp_aux_list);
     mutex_unlock(&dp_aux_lock);
}

static void drm_dp_aux_remove(struct drm_dp_aux *aux)
{
     mutex_lock(&dp_aux_lock);
     list_del_init(&aux->list);
     mutex_unlock(&dp_aux_lock);
}

#ifdef CONFIG_OF
struct drm_dp_aux *of_drm_find_dp_aux_by_node(struct device_node *np)
{
     struct drm_dp_aux *aux;
     mutex_lock(&dp_aux_lock);

     list_for_each_entry(aux, &dp_aux_list, list) {
         if (aux->dev->of_node == np) {
             mutex_unlock(&dp_aux_lock);
             return aux;
         }
     }

     mutex_unlock(&dp_aux_lock);
     return NULL;
}
EXPORT_SYMBOL(of_drm_find_dp_aux_by_node);
#endif


int drm_dp_aux_init(struct drm_dp_aux *aux)
{
     INIT_LIST_HEAD(&aux->list);
     ...
}

int drm_dp_aux_register(struct drm_dp_aux *aux)
{
     ...
     drm_dp_aux_add(aux);

     return 0;
}

void drm_dp_aux_unregister(struct drm_dp_aux *aux)
{
     drm_dp_aux_remove(aux);
     ...
}

Overall this seems like a good approach, but there's one unanswered
question: what happens if drm_dp_aux_unregister() is called while a
panel holds a reference to it ? The drm_dp_aux instances likely need to
be reference-counted.

To finish adding breadcrumbs to those playing at home, v7 of my patch

https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210517200907.1459182-1-dianders@chromium.org/

Assuming that people don't hate that solution it may be a good things
for you to build your patches atop. :-)

Thank you, for all your suggestions.

I have posted the new patch series (v4) on top of the above series. 
Please check:
