thanks for working on that - it's very (very,very) much appreciated.

It took me some time to figure it out: It seems rk3568-iommu driver s
broken - I did only get "white noise" when using it alongside vop
(similar like it was reported here before). However: removing the
iommu-property from vop makes it working for me with HDMI output on
quartz64 as well. Could you check if you have the iommu driver in kernel
enabled if it works for you, if the property is present in DT? (I used
5.16-rc1 + this series + [0]). Also vop mmu seems to have the
power-domain missing in your series (same as downstream) - however
adding that doesn't help much currently.
As a sidenote: I verfied this with using Ezequiel's vpu addtion for
RK356x: It did only work when removing the iommu there as well (getting
tons of page faults otherwise) - so iommu driver really seems to broken,
at least for RK3566. (Or I'm a missing a option in kernel config, which
wasn't required for the older iommu version?)
But as reported before: For HDMI this does currently only work for pixel
clock rates, which are integer-divisable with hpll clock rate (which is
the hardcoded parent of vop0's dclk)
As discussed in Benjamin's initial submission of the addition of
RK3568's hdmi controller [1] same as with RK3288's and RK3399's hdmi phy
needs a reference clock (it's called vpll there) which needs to get
switched before the vop switches the mode (since phy rate switching is
done before) - it's HPLL in case of RK356x. For whatever reason it's
called "ref" for RK356x only downstream [2] - so you should add another
clock "vpll" (renaming it to "ref" for _ALL_ SoCs which have it would be
a _GREAT_ idea) which is <&pmucru PLL_HPLL>.
What brings us to the "real" clock problem and the reason, why
non-integer divisable pixel clock rates are not possible ATM: This is a
long standing issue for RK3288 and RK3399 as well (and one of the main
reasons why 4k modes are not possible for those older SoCs currently):
Upstream all PLL rates are controlled with those PLL rate tables in the
clock driver and they have to be _exactly_ defined as they are used
(HDMI sinks are very picky).
You will not see any additional rates downstream for RK3568: they have a
mechanism there to automatically calculate the PLL settings if the rate
doesn't exist in these tables (IIRC this was submitted upstream also:
but it was rejected/ignored by maintainers). As a quick hackarround (for
testing): You could use this table [3] we are using in LibreElec for
RK3399 to get 4k modes working and assign it to HPLL in RK3568's clock
driver (I tested it and it works great). It might be possible to just
add those rates (some also without frac dividers) to the common PLL
table for RK3568.
I'm sorry I didn't reply inline as I'm supposed to do: It's late and I
wanted to offload my findings now :)
(You probably should also remove the printks in V2)
