dw_hdmi_irq() calls drm_bridge_hpd_notify(), which would call 
bridge->hpd_cb() if it was non-NULL.

Calling drm_bridge_connector_enable_hpd() will set the bridge->hpd_cb() 
callback to point to drm_bridge_connector_hpd_cb(), which itself will 
call drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event(). Therefore, all that is missing is 
one call to drm_bridge_connector_enable_hpd().
