Subject: [PATCH 1/2] dt-bindings: drm/bridge: sn65dsi86: Add panel-hpd-delay
Date: Fri, 19 Oct 2018 13:19:39 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The timing diagram of some eDP panels says that you're supposed to
wait for HPD to be asserted before the aux channel is operational.

In some cases, however, it's better to just hardcode the max delay
instead of trying to use HPD.  Why?

The sn65dsi86 datasheet says that it only reports the debounced
HPD signal to software.  It will tell software about HPD assertion
as quickly as 100 ms after it's asserted, but sometimes it might
take 400 ms because it's timed with a very inaccurate ring
oscillator.  In practice it was measured at 200 ms on at least
one system.

On a particular panel, HPD was asserted 84 ms after power was given.
This same panel specified that HPD would always be asserted within
200 ms of applying power.  Thus on this panel with the measured
84 ms to assert HPD + the 200 ms measured debounce we'd wait 284 ms
which is 84 ms longer than just hardcoding the sleep.

Let's allow boards to explicitly choose the hardcoded delay by adding
a device tree attribute for it.  A few notes:
a) This delay can't easily be in the panel bindings because the delay
   wouldn't actually be needed if the same panel were hooked somewhere
   else (someplace with more sane HPD behavior).
b) The nice thing about being able to set this delay is that it's also
   useful on boards where HPD wasn't hooked up at all (for whatever
