The main reason to have a separate patch was that I was not sure what is already merged somewhere and what is not.
And fixing something which is not yet introduced makes it quite difficult to explain, why it is needed at all...

So I would prefer to leave it as is until more comments arrive.

The hardware gpio that we can define for the hdmi-connector seems not to be available on all CI20 boards.

Hence we must trigger (enable) the poll logic of the dw-hdmi bridge from the SoC specialization.
This seems to be best done in the ingenic-dw-hdmi driver.

Unless someone has a better idea how the dw-hdmi driver could find out that it should poll if a connector is defined.
The base driver seems as if it has been developed long ago without connectors and bridge chains in mind.
Hence we are retrofitting fixes for changes introduced outside the drivers.

Nikolaus
