I had a second look, and maybe the series should start with a patch like
this instead, so that the rockchip_lvds.c hunks can be removed from
patch 1/26 and 24/26. That would perhaps be slightly cleaner?

On the other hand, it's orthogonal and this series can be left as is
(with the benefit of me not having to do another iteration and you all
not having another bunch of messages to sift through). The below
patch could easily be (adjusted and) applied later instead. Or not,
since the right fix is to do this with the newfangled static image
format mechanism from Jacopo Mondi, and it might be easier to just do
it right.

State your preference.

Subject: [PATCH] drm/rockchip: lvds: do not dig into the DT of remote bridges

The driver is trying to find the needed "data-mapping" for
interacting with the following bridge in the graphics chain.
But, doing so is bad since it is done w/o regard of the
compatible of the remote bridge, so the value of "data-mapping"
might not mean what this driver assumes. It is also pointless
since no bridge has any documented "data-mapping" DT property
and no dts file show any undocumented use.

Just remove the inappropriate code.
