eDP panels might need some power sequencing and backlight management,
so make it possible to associate a drm_panel with a DP instance and
prepare and enable the panel accordingly.

Signed-off-by: Bjorn Andersson <bjorn.andersson@linaro.org>

This solves my immediate problem on my 8cx laptops, of indirectly controlling
the backlight during DPMS. But my panel is powered when I boot it and as such I
get the hpd interrupt and I don't actually have to deal with a power on
sequence - so I'm posting this as an RFC, hoping to get some input on these
other aspects.

If this is acceptable I'd be happy to write up an accompanying DT binding
change that marks port 2 of the DP controller's of_graph as a reference to the
attached panel.

The idea looks good from my point of view. For v1 could you please 
extend it with the `if (panel)` checks and handling of the error codes.

Thanks.

Passing NULL to the drm_panel_* api is valid and a nop, and I run the
same code for both eDP and DP.

Would you still like it to indicate to a future reader that this might
be NULL?

dianders@ mentioned creating a connector (and maybe a bridge) for the DP
connector (not eDP)[1]. I'm not sure that's directly related, but I
think with the aux bus code the panel isn't managed in the encoder
driver. Instead the encoder sees a bridge and tries to power it up and
then query things over the aux bus? It's all a little too fuzzy to me
right now so I could be spewing nonsense but I think we want to take
this bridge route if possible.

So rather than storing the drm_panel, I suggest that you actually wrap
it with a "panel_bridge". Follow the ideas from commit 4e5763f03e10
("drm/bridge: ti-sn65dsi86: Wrap panel with panel-bridge") and the fix
in commit c7782443a889 ("drm/bridge: ti-sn65dsi86: Avoid creating
multiple connectors").

If you do that then actually a bunch of your patch becomes
unnecessary. You basically just have to attach the "next" bridge in
the right place and you're good, right?

The idea of modeling the connector as a bridge is something that makes
sense to me, but it probably makes sense to tackle that separately. We
don't need to block on it.

The whole DP AUX bus can also be tackled separately after the fact. It
really doesn't change things very much--we still have to find/attach
the panel. It just makes the panel probe in a slightly different way
and as a side effect gives the panel access to the DP AUX bus.

Why port 2? Shouldn't this just be port 1 always? The yaml says that
port 1 is "Output endpoint of the controller". We should just use port
1 here, right?

I thought port 1 was the link to the Type-C controller, didn't give it a
second thought and took the next available.

But per the binding it makes sense that the panel is the "Output
endpoint of the controller" and I guess one will have either a Type-C
controller or a panel - even after the DP rework?

Bjorn

Right, my understanding is that "port 1" is the output port
irregardless of whether you're outputting to a panel or a DP
connector. I think the only case it would make sense to add a new port
is if it was possible for the output to be connected to both a panel
and a DP port simultaneously. ...but that doesn't make sense.

Finally got back to this, changed it to 1 and figured out why I left it
at 2.

drm_of_find_panel_or_bridge() on a DP controller will find the of_graph
reference to the USB-C controller, scan through the registered panels
and conclude that the of_node of the USB-C controller isn't a registered
panel and return -EPROBE_DEFER.

So I picked 2, because I'm not able to figure out a way to distinguish
between a not yet probed panel and the USB-C controller...

Any suggestions?

Bjorn

I'm confused, but maybe it would help if I could see something
concrete. Is there a specific board this was happening on?

Under the DP node in the device tree I expect:

ports {
  port@1 {
    reg = <1>;
    edp_out: endpoint {
      remote-endpoint = <&edp_panel_in>;
    };
  };
};

If you have "port@1" pointing to a USB-C controller but this instance
of the DP controller is actually hooked up straight to a panel then
you should simply delete the "port@1" that points to the typeC and
replace it with one that points to a panel, right?

Right, let's make this more concrete with a snippet from the actual
SC8180x DT.

As you can see, port 1 on &mdss_dp0 and &mdss_dp1 points to the two UCSI
connectors and the eDP points to the panel, exactly like we agreed.

So now I call:
    drm_of_find_panel_or_bridge(dev->of_node, 1, 0, &panel, NULL);

which for the two DP nodes will pass respective UCSI connector to
drm_find_panel() and get EPROBE_DEFER back - because they are not on
panel_list.

There's nothing indicating in the of_graph that the USB connectors
aren't panels (or bridges), so I don't see a way to distinguish the two
types remotes.

Hope that clarifies my conundrum.

Bjorn

Where is this DT? Is it in the kernel tree?

That's "good" right?

I'd like to create a bridge, not panel, for USB connectors, so that we
can push sideband HPD signaling through to the DP driver. But either way
this should work, right? If drm_of_find_panel_or_bridge() returns
-EPROBE_DEFER, then assume the connector is DP. Otherwise if there's a
valid pointer then treat it as eDP. We can't go too crazy though because
once we attach a bridge we're assuming eDP which may not actually be
true.

If we make a bridge for type-C USB connectors then we'll be able to use
the drm_bridge_connector code to automatically figure out the connector
type (eDP vs. DP vs. whatever else is chained onto the end of the DP
connector). That would require updating the bridge connector code to
treat DP as a connector type though. And then the eDP path would need to
be handled when there's no bridge really involved, like in your case
where the eDP hardware is directly connected to the eDP panel.

In this case I think we're supposed to make a bridge in this DP driver
itself that does pretty basic stuff and assumes the connector is eDP or
DP based on the hardware type it is. Then if we wire a type-c connector
up to the eDP hardware the eDP bridge we make in this driver will see a
type-c connector that makes a bridge saying "I'm a DP connector" and the
drm_bridge_connector code will look at the last bridge in the chain to
see that it's actually a DP connector.

Still missing a bunch of driver pieces, so I haven't yet pushed any of
this upstream.

But if you're interested you can find some work-in-progress here:

How will I be able to distinguish this from "the eDP panel is not yet
probed"? Unless we first implement the rest of this suggestion to make
sure drm_of_find_panel_or_bridge() has something to find in both cases.

This is rather far from how I do handle USB, and its HPD interrupts
today. But perhaps I'm missing something there...

Let me get that patch on the list as well then.

As far as I can tell the way this would be solved would be to actually
pass &bridge in and then make sure that a bridge would be in place for
the DP connector. In the full DP case you'll get an -EPROBE_DEFER if
the connector hasn't been probed but once it's probed then it should
register as a bridge and thus give you the info you need (AKA that
this isn't a panel).

I haven't done the digging to see how all this works, but according to
Laurent [1]: "Physical connectors are already handled as bridges, see
drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/display-connector.c"

So basically I think this is solvable in code and there's no reason to
mess with the devicetree bindings to solve this problem. Does that
sound right?

All this seems to make sense for both eDP and "native" DP.

But I don't have a DisplayPort connector.

I have a USB-C connector, that upon determining that it's time to play
DisplayPort will use the typec_mux abstraction to tell someone on the
other side of the of_graph about DisplayPort events (HPD).

So where would I put this drm_bridge in the USB-C case?

I don't see that it fits in the Type-C side of things and putting it on
the DP side would leave us with exactly the problem we have here. So we
would have to put a fake "DP connector" inbetween the DP node and the
Type-C controller?


For reference, this is how I thought one is supposed to tie the Type-C
controller to the display driver:
https://lore.kernel.org/all/20211005022451.2037405-1-bjorn.andersson@linaro.org/


I'm afraid I must be missing something in Laurent and yours proposal
(although I think Laurent is talking about the native DP case?).

Bjorn

To summarize where I think our out-of-band discussion went, I think
you're OK w/ keeping this at "port@1" for both the DP and eDP case and
we'll figure out _some_ way to make it work.

OK, so I looked at that a bit. Fair warning that I've never looked at
the type C code before today so anything I say could be totally wrong!
:-)

...but I _think_ you're abusing the "mux" API for this. I think a type
C port can have exactly 1 mux, right? Right now you are claiming to be
_the_ mux in the DP driver, but what about for other alt modes? If
those wanted to be notified about similar things it would be
impossible because you're already _the_ mux, right?

I _think_ a mux is supposed to be something more like
`drivers/phy/rockchip/phy-rockchip-typec.c` (though that code predates
the type C framework we're looking at here). There the phy can do all
the work of remuxing things / flipping orientation / etc. I don't
think it's a requirement that every SoC be able to do this remuxing
itself but (if memory serves) rk3399 implemented it so we didn't have
to do it on the TCPC and could use a cheaper solution there.

In any case, my point is that I think there is supposed to be a
_single_ mux per port that handles reassigning pins and that's what
this API is for.

...so I will still assert that the right thing to do is to have a
drm_bridge for the type c connector and _that's_ what should be
sending HPD.

I actually don't think so, because I acquire the typec_mux handle by the
means of:

mux_desc.svid = USB_TYPEC_DP_SID;
mux_desc.mode = USB_TYPEC_DP_MODE;
alt_port->mux = fwnode_typec_mux_get(fwnode, &mux_desc);

And in the DisplayPort node I provide svid = /bits/ 16 <0xff01>;

So I will be able to reference multiple different altmode
implementors using this scheme.

I'm afraid I don't see how this interacts with a display controller. It
seems more like it's the phy side of things, what we have split between
the Type-C controller and the QMP phy to set the pins in the right
state.

If that's the case things such as typec_mux_match() is just completely
backwards.

That still implies that all the current typec_mux code got it all wrong
and should be thrown out. If you instead consider that you have a Type-C
controller that upon switching DisplayPort on/off calls typec_mux_set()
to inform the functions that things has changed then all the current
code makes sense.

It also maps nicely to how the TypeC controller would call
typec_switch_set() to inform, in our case the QMP phy that the
orientation has switched.


It seems reasonable to have some common helper code that registers the
typec_mux and turn its notifications into HPD notifications to the
display code, but I still think that should live in the DRM framework,
separate from the USB code.

Hrm, I guess I need to go find that code. Ah, I see it in your WIP
tree, but not posted anywhere. :-P The only code I can see calling
fwnode_typec_mux_get() is `drivers/platform/chrome/cros_ec_typec.c`.
In that code it passes NULL for the mux_desc and I'm nearly certain
that it just handles one "mux" per connector despite the fact that it
handles lots of different types of alternate modes. That doesn't mean
that the cros_ec implementation is correct / finalized, but it's a
reference point.

OK, so I'm trying to grok this more. Let's see.

I'm looking at ucsi_glink_probe() and looking at the matching dts in
your WIP tree [1] in "sc8180x-lenovo-flex-5g.dts" OK, so:

1. It's looping once per _connector_ by looping with
`device_for_each_child_node(dev, fwnode)`.

2. For each connector, it has exactly one `alt_port` structure.

3. For each `alt_port` structure it has exactly one `mux`.

...so currently with your WIP tree there is one "mux" per type C connector.


Perhaps what you're saying, though, is that the UCSI code in your WIP
tree can/should be changed to support more than one mux per port. Then
I guess it would have logic figuring out what muxes to notify about
which things? ...and I guess that would mean that it's currently a bug
that the ucsi_altmode_enable_usb() notifies "the DP type C mux" about
USB changes?

This was actually kinda my point. ;-) Specifically I think
`phy-rockchip-typec.c` is the thing that's supposed to be a "mux". I
think your display controller isn't a mux. Yeah, it's handy that muxes
get told about DP HPD status, but that doesn't mean it's the right
abstraction for you to implement. In my mental model, it's the same as
implementing your "i2c" controller with a "pinctrl" driver. :-P

Yeah, I have no explanation for typec_mux_match(). Let me see if I can
lure some type C folks into this discussion.

I think I'm going to step back and hope that the experts can chime in.

This aligns with the model I have in my mind (not that that is
necessarily the right one).
I took that matching code to be meant to handle cases where the
firmware doesn't explicitly
define a "mode-switch" for the port (and so we look at the SVIDs
listed in the Mux fwnode descriptor).

The matcher code does suggest there could be a mux for each alternate
mode. But then, how does the
bus code know which mux to set [2] ? In that code, the struct altmode
has a pointer to the struct typec_mux, but I
don't see where that pointer is assigned. I assumed that it was set to
whatever the mux node of the
Type C port was whenever the port driver registered its altmodes for
each port, but I can't substantiate
that assumption in code.

Heikki, do you have any guidance regarding what the expected usage is
here? One typec_mux struct per type C port? Or
1 typec_mux per altmode per port?

I didn't go over the whole thread, so I may have misunderstood
something, but I don't think this has anything to do with muxes. The
mux should not be a problem for the DRM side under no circumstance.
Like Doug said, the mux API is being abused here.

HPD was one use case here, so I'll try to explain how that happens...

If the USB Type-C connector is in DP alt mode, then ideally your USB
Type-C controller/port driver has registered the partner device DP alt
mode the moment it detected that the partner supports that mode, and
that partner DP alt mode will have then been bind to the DP alt mode
driver:

        drivers/usb/typec/altmodes/displayport.c

After that, if the DP alt mode driver sees HPD - HPD is message
signalled in DP alt mode (in case some of you guys didn't know) - the
DP alt mode driver notifies the DRM connector about it by calling
this function:

        void drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event(struct fwnode_handle *connector_fwnode);

If your USB Type-C controller/port driver does not yet register the DP
alt mode, the it's responsible of handling HPD separately by calling
drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event() on its own.

Either way, the only thing needed here is description of the
connection between the USB Type-C connector and the DisplayPort in
firmware - the mux is not relevant here. There are no DT bindings
defined for that AFAIK (or are there?), but presumable you want to use
OF graph with DT. Right now the DP alt mode driver does not try to
find the connection from device graph (so OF graph), but it should not
be a problem to add support for it.

The drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event() didn't exist when I tried to get
this working earlier this year and I couldn't figure out what the
intended design was to feed the HPD information into our DP driver.

Misplacing the typec_mux made all the pieces fall in place and it looked
good, but I now agree that the typec_mux should be used to mux in/out
the DP PHY on the pads as a result of the PD negotiation and then
separate of that the HPD signals should be sent towards the DRM driver
using drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event() - hopefully by reusing the
displayport altmode driver, but I still need to figure out how to
incorporate that in my custom TypeC controller driver.

I'll poke around and see what's missing to get
drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event() work in my model.

The one thing that I still don't understand though is, if the typec_mux
is used by the typec controller to inform _the_ mux about the function
to be used, what's up with the complexity in typec_mux_match()? This is
what lead me to believe that typec_mux was enabling/disabling individual
altmodes, rather just flipping the physical switch at the bottom.

Ah, typec_mux_match() is a mess. I'm sorry about that. I think most of
the code in that function is not used by anybody. If I remember
correctly, all that complexity is attempting to solve some
hypothetical corner case(s). Probable a case where we have multiple
muxes per port to deal with.

I think it would probable be best to clean the function to the bare
minimum by keeping only the parts that are actually used today
(attached).

thanks,

Finally found my way back to this topic and it doesn't look like I can
reuse the existing altmode code with the firmware interface provided by
Qualcomm, so  I just hacked something up that invokes
drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event().

But I'm not able to make sense of what the expected usage is. Reading
altmode/displayport.c, it seems that I should only invoke
drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event() as HPD state toggles.

I made a trial implementation of this, where my firmware interface
driver calls drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event() every time HPD state
changes and then in my oob_hotplug_event callback I flip the DP
controller between on and off.

Unfortunately when I then connect my HDMI dongle, I get HPD state HIGH,
call the oob_hotplug_event, the DP driver powers up and concludes that
there's nothing connected to the dongle and goes to idle. I then connect
the HDMI cable to the dongle, the firmware sends me another message with
HPD irq and state HIGH, which I ignore because it's not a change in
state.

In the end I hacked up drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event() to allow me to
pass the HPD state and this solves my problem. I can now distinguish
between connect, disconnect and attention.

Can you please help shed some light on what I might be missing?

Thanks,
Bjorn

Originally I wanted an API that we could use to pass all the details
that we have in the USB Type-C drivers (that would be the
configuration and status) to the GPU drivers, but Hans was against
that because, if I remember correctly, the OOB hotplug event may need
to be delivered to the GPU drivers in some cases even when the
connector is not USB Type-C connector, and he wanted a common API.
Hans, please correct me if I got it wrong.

I think that the GPU drivers need to handle USB Type-C connectors
separately one way or the other, but maybe the notification from the
connector can continue to be generic - not USB Type-C specific.

Imre proposed that the GPU drivers should be able to query the
DisplayPort configuration and status from the USB Type-C drivers
instead of the USB Type-C drivers just dumping the information
together with the notification about some event (so connection,
disconnection or attention) like I originally proposed. Imre, please
correct me if I misunderstood you :-).

I'm fine with anything, but we do need improvement here as you guys
can see.

thanks,

The plan always was to pass some extra information, like the number
of available DP lanes (which can make training faster) along as
parameter to the drm_connector_oob_hotplug_event().

The merged version ended up not doing this because there were no
consumers, but passing additional info like HPD state definitely
is ok.

Hans

Thanks, that clarifies things.

I think it makes sense to pass #lanes, as that would rule out the
possibility of attempting to run 4 lanes per dpcd information over a
2-lane mux configuration as well.

I will write up some patches.

I think the link config may be useful on Intel systems as well where the
hotplug event is delivered by another mean, the Gfx driver getting an
actual HW interrupt. Also on systems where the hotplug event does get
delivered OOB, the Gfx driver may want to query the current state, for
instance during booting or system resuming, independently of a hotplug
event.

Based on the above imo it would make sense to decouple the hotplug event
notification and the link configuration querying interface, or at least
make the querying possible in addition to the notification.
