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.
