Ok, this is a case c).

I vaguely remember having tried to analyse what bridge->hpd_cb is but stopped since it is 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().

Ah, ok, I see.

Well, a little more analysis shows that drm_bridge_connector_enable_hpd is called
in the *-drv.c for some other plaforms:

Hm. Can we call drm_bridge_connector_enable_hpd() from inside dw-hdmi?

Or would this be the solution if merged? (I currently can't try code).


BR and thanks,
