Subject: [PATCH] drm/i915: drop buggy write to FDI_RX_CHICKEN register

commit 607a6f7a6621f65706ff536b2615ee65b5c2f575 upstream.

Jani Nikula noticed that the parentheses are wrong and we & the bit
with the register address instead of the read-back value. He sent a
patch to correct that.

On second look, we write the same register in the previous line, and
the w/a seems to be to set FDI_RX_PHASE_SYNC_POINTER_OVR to enable the
logic, then keep always set FDI_RX_PHASE_SYNC_POINTER_OVR and toggle
FDI_RX_PHASE_SYNC_POINTER_EN before/after enabling the pc transcoder.

So the right things seems to be to simply kill the 2nd write.

 "drm/i915: disable cpt phase pointer fdi rx workaround", easier to apply ]
