[PATCH v3 01/22] drm: Include ddc adapter pointer in struct drm_connector

Hi

I like the idea, but would prefer a more structured approach.

Setting connector->ddc before calling drm_sysfs_connector_add() seems
error prone. The dependency is not really clear from the code or interfaces.

The other thing is that drivers I mostly work on, ast and mgag200, have
code like this:

  struct ast_i2c_chan {
	struct i2c_adapter adapter;
	struct drm_device *dev;
	struct i2c_algo_bit_data bit;
  };

  struct ast_connector {
	struct drm_connector base;
	struct ast_i2c_chan *i2c;
  };

It already encodes the connection between connector and ddc adapter.

I suggest to introduce struct drm_i2c_adapter

  struct drm_i2c_adapter {
	struct i2c_adapter base;
	struct drm_connector *connector;
  };

and convert drivers over to it. Ast would look like this:

  struct ast_i2c_chan {
	struct drm_i2c_adapter adapter;
	struct i2c_algo_bit_data bit;
  };

Two new sysfs functions would set up and remove the file.

  int drm_sysfs_i2c_adapter_add(struct drm_i2c_adapter *i2c);
  void drm_sysfs_i2c_adapter_remove(struct drm_i2c_adapter *i2c);

The i2c adapter, connector->ddc pointer and sysfs entry would be
initialized by

  drm_i2c_adapter_init(struct drm_i2c_adapter *i2c, struct connector
	*connector, void *algo_data);

and cleaned up by

  drm_i2c_adapter_remove(struct drm_i2c_adapter *i2c);


Thoughts?

Best regards
Thomas
