Well it was your suggestion after v8:

https://lore.kernel.org/all/DIA33R.QE29K7RKLI2C1@crapouillou.net/

So we now almost go back to RFC v1 almost 2 years ago:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-mips/patch/2c131e1fb19e19f958a612f7186bc83f4afb0b0a.1582744379.git.hns@goldelico.com/

Of course there was a good reason to better handle the regulator
AND the dw_hdmi_remove() by a single mechanism.

Now the regulator has gone and been replaced by the hdmi connector
and we can go back.

No, this does not work since we need to platform_set_drvdata().
to be able to access the private struct in the remove callback.
And checking errors after platform_set_drvdata() can be done but
looks strange to me.

It is up to you what you prefer.

Yes, indeed. Thanks for spotting!

Was also good in v1. Probably someone deleted the hyphen unnoticed during editing of "jz4780" to "ingenic"...

BR and thanks,
Nikolaus
