OK, so I'm trying to figure out how to do this without just "kicking
the can" down the road. I guess your idea is that for the next year
this will be the default and that anyone who really wants
"CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_EDP" will "opt-in" to keep it by adding
"CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_EDP=y" to their config? ...and then after a year
passes we remove the default? ...but that won't work, will it? Since
"CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_EDP" will be the default for the next year then you
really can't add it to the "defconfig", at least if you ever
"normalize" it. The "defconfig" by definition has everything stripped
from it that's already the "default", so for the next year anyone who
tries to opt-in will get their preference stripped.

Hrm, so let me explain options as I see them. Maybe someone can point
out something that I missed. I'll assume that we'll change the config
option from CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE_EDP to CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_EDP
(remove the "SIMPLE" part).

==

Where we were before my series:

* One config "CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE" and it enables simple non-eDP
and eDP drivers.

==

Option 1: update everyone's configs (this patch)

* Keep old config "CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE" but it now only means
enable the panel-simple (non-eDP) driver.
* Anyone who wants eDP panels must opt-in to "CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_EDP"
* Update all configs in mainline; any out-of mainline configs must
figure this out themselves.

Pros:
* no long term baggage

Cons:
* patch upstream is a bit of "churn"
* anyone with downstream config will have to figure out what happened.

==

Option 2: kick the can down the road + accept cruft

* Keep old config "CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE" and it means enable the
panel-simple (non-eDP) driver.
* Anyone with "CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE" is opted in by default to
"CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_EDP"

AKA:
config DRM_PANEL_EDP
  default DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE

Pros:
* no config patches needed upstream at all and everything just works!

Cons:
* people are opted in to extra cruft by default and need to know to turn it off.
* unclear if we can change the default without the same problems.

==

Option 3: try to be clever

* Add _two_ new configs. CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE_V2 and CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_EDP.
* Old config "CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE" gets marked as "deprecated".
* Both new configs have "default CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE"

Now anyone old will magically get both the new config options by
default. Anyone looking at this in the future _won't_ set the
deprecated CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE but will instead choose if they
want either the eDP or "simple" driver.

Pros:
* No long term baggage.
* Everyone is transitioned automatically by default with no cruft patches.

Cons:
* I can't think of a better name than "CONFIG_DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE_V2" and
that name is ugly.

==

Option 4: shave a yak

When thinking about this I came up with a clever idea of stashing the
kernel version in a defconfig when it's generated. Then you could do
something like:

config DRM_PANEL_EDP
  default DRM_PANEL_SIMPLE if DEFCONFIG_GENERATED_AT <= 0x00050f00

That feels like a good idea to me but who knows what others would
think. In general I think this series already shaves enough yaks. This
isn't a new problem we're trying to solve so it seems like we should
pick one of the options above.

==

Unless I get an explicit NAK from someone like Olof or Arnd or I hear
that everyone loves Option #3 I'll probably just stick with the
existing approach since:

* Olof's wording didn't make it sound like a strong objection.

* From git history it looks as if config patches don't necessarily
land through the SoC tree and thus I'd by default follow the
suggestions of the DRM folks. Andrzej suggested going with the
existing approach as long as I changed the symbol names and re-ordered
the patches.


Please yell if anything above sounds wrong! I'll probably try to send
out a new version tomorrow or the next day, but I won't land it right
away to give people time to yell.
