[PATCH v2 0/4] drm/vc4: Improve alpha format plane support

This series improves the handling of alpha formats with the VC4 HVS
compositor. Alpha formats are marked as premultiplied as is standard
for DRM. Further fix a display corruption issue when planes with
per-pixel alpha try blending from the (nonexistent) background by
selectively enabling a black background color fill.

This series follows the changes suggested by Eric Anholt in a previous
patch discussion:


A simple test program for the display corruption issue is available:


v2 of the series fixes the has_alpha confusion and moves needs_bg_fill
into the plane state. This unfortunately necessitated moving the plane
state to a header where it can be referenced from vc4_crtc.

Stefan Schake (4):
  drm/vc4: Set premultiplied for alpha formats
  drm/vc4: Check if plane requires background fill
  drm/vc4: Move plane state to header
  drm/vc4: Enable background color fill when necessary
