Standard DRM panel driver for DSI command mode panel used by omapfb2 is also
available now. Just like the other panels its module name clashes with the
module from drivers/video/fbdev/omap2/omapfb/displays, part of the deprecated
omapfb2 fbdev driver. As omapfb2 can only be compiled when the omapdrm driver
is disabled, and the DRM panel drivers are useless in that case, make the
omapfb2 panel depend on the standard DRM panels being disabled to fix
the name clash.

Laurent introduced and fixed the same issue for the other panels and
this simply replicates the same solution for DSI command mode panel.

For a backport this looks good:
Acked-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

But why is it it we need omapfb at all when we have omapdrm?
Can we sunset all or some parts of omap support in video/?
If not, what is missing to do so.

Thanks.

> But why is it it we need omapfb at all when we have omapdrm?

I think there are two reasons omapfb has not been killed yet. One
reason was missing support for manually updated DSI panels, which
have been working since 1 or 2 kernel releases now. The other reason
is some people using it in combination with an out-of-tree PowerVR
kernel driver. There is currently work going on to use a more recent
PowerVR driver based on omapdrm driven by Maemo Leste people.

IDK the exact status of the PowerVR work and have not been using
omapfb myself for years. I don't think there is a reason to rush
this, so my suggestion is removing it in 3 steps giving people
the chance to complain:

1. Add 'depends on EXPERT' to 'FB_OMAP2' and add deprecation notice
   referencing omapdrm in help text in 5.12
2. Add 'depends on BROKEN' in 5.13
3. Drop drivers/video/fbdev/omap2 afterwards

Thanks. I'll push to drm-misc-next, as that's where the commit that
breaks this is.

omapfb also has a custom sysfw API, so applications that depend on it
would not work anymore. I don't know if there are such applications, though.

I'd love to remove omapfb, but I also fear that there are still people
using it. We can try the above sequence, but it's probably better to go
slower, as people may not be using the latest kernels.

I thought about this again and I think the best option is to rename
CONFIG_FB_OMAP2 to something like CONFIG_FB_OMAP2_DEPRECATED and
update the help text. That way anyone with CONFIG_FB_OMAP2 in
their .config will definitely notice the change when upgrading to
a newer kernel, but can easily fix it temporarily. Help text could
be

"This driver will be removed in 2022, please switch to omapdrm."

and no other intermediate steps are required that way :)

But while looking through CONFIG_FB_OMAP2 references I noticed there
is also a V4L2 driver (CONFIG_VIDEO_OMAP2_VOUT), which seems to
only work with omapfb. IIUIC that driver provides display overlays
to V4L. I guess on omapdrm V4L can use DRM planes instead and no
driver is needed (i.e. this driver could just go away with omapfb)?

The plan looks good to me.

One feature that the omapfb2 and the omap-vout drivers provide is
rotation support with VRFB on OMAP3. I haven't moved to omapdrm on an
old project for this reason. It should be possible to implement rotation
support in omapdrm, but I'm not aware of any effort in that direction.
