Actually my commit message was not detailed enough. The FB_S3C here
won't solve the issue because you may:
1, disable FIMD and FB_S3C,
2, enabke DECON and DP,
and it won't compile.

Currently the FIMD must be enabled if DRM_EXYNOS_DP is enabled.

Right, you correctly pointed current dependencies. Still it looks little
hacky because EXYNOS_DP may work with FIMD or DECON. It does not really
need FIMD. Using ifdefs in headers is not uncommon - many core
subsystems do this that way to provide stubs.

Probably the cleanest way would be to provide by FIMD and DECON a common
interface for DP for such operation, something like:
struct exynos_drm_crtc {
	struct drm_crtc                 base;
	void (*clock_enable)(struct exynos_drm_crtc *crtc, bool enable)

which, if non-NULL, will be called by exynos_dp_core.c:
static void exynos_dp_poweron(struct exynos_dp_device *dp)
	if (crtc->clock_enable)
		crtc->clock_enable(crtc, true);

What do you think?
