Hello Jacopo,

Thank you for the patch.

This is hard to parse.

As -ENXIO can only be returned by rcar_lvds_parse_dt_companion(), and
rcar_lvds_parse_dt_companion() is only called when the
RCAR_LVDS_QUIRK_DUAL_LINK flag is set, this essentially means that you
always zero the error returned from rcar_lvds_parse_dt_companion(). This
is both complicated and too drastic as the second -ENXIO error case
shouldn't be ignored. It would be better and simpler to return 0 from
rcar_lvds_parse_dt_companion() when the renesas,companion property can't
be found.
