[responding here because I didn't receive the actual patch]

This looks like it's doing what it's supposed to, but I ran into a bunch
of build fails with CONFIG_OF=n. Sent a fix to one [1], but stopped at
the next. Looks like you'll have to exclude more. And I'm pretty sure
we'll uncover more configurations where this will fail.

But I do applaud the goal, and I'm committed to making all include/drm
headers self-contained. I wouldn't block this based on the issues, it's
pretty much the only way to expose them and get them fixed/excluded, and
it's behind a config knob after all.

With the caveat that I didn't finish the build, but OTOH tested the
rainy day scenario and had the patch find issues it's meant to find:
