As Maxime pointed out it should already be called by drm_helper_hpd_irq_event() in dw_hdmi_irq() but isn't
because mode_config.poll_enabled isn't enabled.

So we can either
a) enable mode_config.poll_enabled so that it is called by drm_helper_hpd_irq_event() or

b) make drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event() being called explicitly in dw_hdmi_irq().
   We could guard that by mode_config.poll_enabled to avoid drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event()
   being called twice (but I think the "changed" mechanism will take care of).

I don't see yet how this would solve it, but it may work.

Anyways, this all is a missing feature (sometimes called "bug") of the *dw-hdmi driver* and IMHO
neither of the connector nor the ingenic-drm-drv.

So I think it should not be solved outside dw-hdmi.

BR and thanks,
