Just remembered: The other reason for device links was module ordering fun. Especially when you have parts managed as a component. Currently if you unload a bridge driver then in some cases the drm_device doesn't rebind. -Daniel > > > --- > > Documentation/gpu/drm-kms-helpers.rst | 6 +++ > > drivers/gpu/drm/drm_bridge.c | 60 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ > > 2 files changed, 66 insertions(+) > > > > diff --git a/Documentation/gpu/drm-kms-helpers.rst b/Documentation/gpu/drm-kms-helpers.rst > > index 10f8df7aecc0..ec2f65b31930 100644 > > --- a/Documentation/gpu/drm-kms-helpers.rst > > +++ b/Documentation/gpu/drm-kms-helpers.rst > > @@ -157,6 +157,12 @@ Display Driver Integration > > .. kernel-doc:: drivers/gpu/drm/drm_bridge.c > > :doc: display driver integration > > > > +Special Care with MIPI-DSI bridges > > +---------------------------------- > > + > > +.. kernel-doc:: drivers/gpu/drm/drm_bridge.c > > + :doc: special care dsi > > + > > Bridge Operations > > ----------------- > > > > diff --git a/drivers/gpu/drm/drm_bridge.c b/drivers/gpu/drm/drm_bridge.c > > index c9a950bfdfe5..81f8dac12367 100644 > > --- a/drivers/gpu/drm/drm_bridge.c > > +++ b/drivers/gpu/drm/drm_bridge.c > > @@ -95,6 +95,66 @@ > > * documentation of bridge operations for more details). > > */ > > > > +/** > > + * DOC: special care dsi > > + * > > + * The interaction between the bridges and other frameworks involved in > > + * the probing of the display driver and the bridge driver can be > > + * challenging.
