[PATCH v6 00/36] drm/connector: Create HDMI Connector infrastructure

Here's a series that creates some extra infrastructure specifically
targeted at HDMI controllers.

The idea behind this series came from a recent discussion on IRC during
which we discussed infoframes generation of i915 vs everything else.

Infoframes generation code still requires some decent boilerplate, with
each driver doing some variation of it.

In parallel, while working on vc4, we ended up converting a lot of i915
logic (mostly around format / bpc selection, and scrambler setup) to
apply on top of a driver that relies only on helpers.

While currently sitting in the vc4 driver, none of that logic actually
relies on any driver or hardware-specific behaviour.

The only missing piece to make it shareable are a bunch of extra
variables stored in a state (current bpc, format, RGB range selection,

The initial implementation was relying on some generic subclass of
drm_connector to address HDMI connectors, with a bunch of helpers that
will take care of all the "HDMI Spec" related code. Scrambler setup is
missing at the moment but can easily be plugged in.

The feedback was that creating a connector subclass like was done for
writeback would prevent the adoption of those helpers since it couldn't
be used in all situations (like when the connector driver can implement
multiple output) and required more churn to cast between the
drm_connector and its subclass. The decision was thus to provide a set
of helper and to store the required variables in drm_connector and
drm_connector_state. This what has been implemented now.

Hans Verkuil also expressed interest in implementing a mechanism in v4l2
to retrieve infoframes from HDMI receiver and implementing a tool to
decode (and eventually check) infoframes. His current work on
edid-decode to enable that based on that series can be found here:

And some more context here:

This series thus leverages the infoframe generation code to expose it
through debugfs.

I also used the occasion to unit-test everything but the infoframe
generation, which can come later once I get a proper understanding of
what the infoframe are supposed to look like. This required to add some
extra kunit helpers and infrastructure to have multiple EDIDs and allow
each test to run with a particular set of capabilities.

This entire series has been tested on a Pi4, passes all its unittests
(125 new tests), and has only been build-tested for sunxi and rockchip.

Let me know what you think,
