[Letux-kernel] [PATCH v5 2/7] drm/ingenic: Add support for JZ4780 and HDMI output

Hi Paul,
sorry to go back here...

DDC power control is working now (and I now understand that a typo in my work-in-progress
ci20.dts had switched the DDC SDA to active "1" without powering DDC and that may be beyond
what the monitor wanted to see and therefore DDC edid isn't reliable any more... Other
HDMI devices are more probably robust).

I have also tested HPD and could make events passed to user-space by setting poll_mode.

There is one subtle thing in ingenic-drm-drv I do not yet understand:

It turns out that the line

		ret = clk_prepare_enable(priv->lcd_clk);

initializes JZ_REG_LCD_OSDC to 0x00010005 (i.e. printk tells 0x0 before).

and writing 

		regmap_write(priv->map, JZ_REG_LCD_OSDC, JZ_LCD_OSDC_OSDEN);

overwrites it with 0x00000001.

This makes the HDMI monitor go/stay black until I write manually 0x5 to

This means that JZ_LCD_OSDC_ALPHAEN must be enabled on jz4780 as well.
Hence overwriting with JZ_LCD_OSDC_OSDEN breaks it.

I didn't notice before because my test setup had some additional private patches
+ reverts and it did not properly revert to regmap_write.

Now the questions:
a) 0x5 is understandable that it sets JZ_LCD_OSDC_ALPHAEN - but why is it needed?
   Is this a not well documented difference between jz4740/60/70/80?
b) how can clk_prepare_enable() write 0x00010005 to JZ_REG_LCD_OSDC? Bug or feature?
   Something in cgu driver going wrong?
c) what do your SoC or panels do if you write 0x5 to JZ_REG_LCD_OSDC?
d) 0x00010005 also has bit 16 set which is undocumented... But this is a don't care
   according to jz4780 PM.

BR and thanks,
