[RFC PATCH v2 0/4] drm: Cleanup probe function for component based masters.

v2: Rebased the patchset on top of drm-next rather than Linus' latest -rc
A few drivers in drivers/gpu/drm are component-enabled and use quite similar
code sequences to probe for their encoder slaves at the remote end of the ports.
Move the code into a "generic" function and remove it from the drivers.
The end results is that drivers get a reference count fix (imx), more thorough
error checking (imx again), setting the DMA coherent mask (armada) plus a decrease
in the overall count of LoC.
I'm looking for comments and testing of the patchset (only compile tested from my
end as I don't have access to all the devices touched by the changes). My main
interest is in finding out if -EINVAL is the correct code to return if
dev->of_node == NULL (handy now, as it is different from the other possible error
codes and used in armada to trigger old platform_data support. Also looking for
thoughts on the correctness of the patch and if it possible to co-opt more drivers
into using the function.
Liviu Dudau (4):
drm: Introduce generic probe function for component based masters.
drm/imx: Convert the probe function to the generic drm_of_component_probe()
drm/rockchip: Convert the probe function to the generic drm_of_component_probe()
drm/armada: Convert the probe function to the generic drm_of_component_probe()
