it looks like during the rebase something did go wrong and I found some issues
I mentioned in the replies to individual patches.
I did prepare a branch based on mainline  with both the old and the new edp
driver - rk3288_veyron_defconfig build both drivers into the image.
While the old driver still works, I wasn't able to make the new one work yet
... the drm core does find the connector, but not that anything is connected
to it. I'll try to dig deeper tomorrow, but maybe you'll see anything
interesting before then.
