Please know that the output data of DECON and FIMD can go to DSI or
Panel directly not through eDP. This means that they - FIMD and eDP or
DECON and eDP - have hardware dependency each other. DECON driver
missed this - only one of Linux framebuffer and DRM KMS driver should
be selected because Linux framebuffer and DRM KMS drivers control same
hardware. So the reason that DECON driver should have dependency on
eDP is not because dp core functions are called by FIMD driver.

In addition, from hw point of view, eDP has depencency on DECON and
FIMD because eDP cannot work itself without DECON or FIMD. Therefore,
if DECON or FIMD is not selected, then eDP should also be disabled  so
that user cannot disable eDP with FIMD because FIMD driver calls eDP's
functions directly. My missing point was that even though we add
!S3C_FB to DECON Kconfig, we can disable eDP with FIMD so build error
can still occur. The best way to resolve this issue would be to move
the functions called by FIMD driver directly to Exynos specific KMS
structure such as exynos crtc - eDP driver implements encoder which
know crtc to FIMD or DECON. The directly call was not good way.
