At least the Rockchip variant of the dw_hdmi can have controllable power supplies
providing 1.0 and 1.8V. Therefore add the possibility for the generic bridge
driver to enable supplies provided by the hw-specific drivers.

changes since v2:
- rename supplies to the names found in the hdmi IP databook
changes since v1:
- follow suggestion from Russell King to keep regulator handling local
  to the rockchip implementation for the time being and only generalize
  when a real second implementation needs regulator handling

does this look ok now?

And as we talked about in Chemnitz, who will be taking such bridge-related 
changes, as you mentioned some last bridge-patches going through Thierry.

Indeed, recent drm/bridge fixes were merged through the drm/panel tree.
Thierry, will you continue to do that or should I collect the dw_hdmi
patches?

If this is specific to the Rockchip implementation, shouldn't this go
into Documentation/devicetree/bindings/video/dw_hdmi-rockchip.txt? It
could then simply go into the Rockchip DRM tree.

actually, we determined that the supply names are universal to the IP (both in 
imx and rockchip and probably more if there are more users out there). Just 
Russell requested that we don't pollute the generic code until necessary, as 
it looks like the supply of those is somehow handled internally on the imx.

If it's universal then there should be no need to mention the Rockchip
compatible specifically. Also, it might be better to submit this as two
separate patches, one for the binding and another for the driver.

I could extract the DT binding piece myself and apply only that, then
somebody else can apply the Rockchip change to that driver separately.

so I've sent a v4 where the dt-binding is split off (and without the Rockchip 
specific text), so if you want to take patch1, Mark could take patch2 and I 
would take the dts changes in patch3.

Why do you think it's universal?

Let's start from the beginning, before we create something that's not
representative of the hardware.

dw_hdmi actually drives two pieces of hardware - the HDMI transmitter,
and a separate hardware block, the HDMI phy.

There are at least two possible HDMI phys referenced in the iMX
documentation - there is one called HEAC which doesn't appear in iMX
devices afaik, and the one which does, which is a 3D phy.

The 3D phy top level IO diagram does have VPH and VP power supplies,
but it also has VP_FILT0, VP_FILT1, VP_FILT2, VP_FILT3 and GD labelled
up as "Power supply signals".  Where they connect to in the rest of the
system - or whether they are connected - is undocumented.

The HDMI transmitter itself is not documented what it's supplies
actually are.

So, what we currently have in DT for dw_hdmi is something which doesn't
_quite_ reflect the hardware right now, and to go adding VP and VPH
supplies to the generic binding is wrong - it doesn't follow the
hardware structure detailed in the iMX documentation I have.

As the Rockchip documentation is not available, I can't comment whether
it would be current proposal is appropriate for Rockchip or not, which
is why I haven't commented on this other than saying that it's not
appropriate to be a generic dw_hdmi binding.

If we wanted to model this correctly, then for iMX, I would suggest
that the HDMI phy should be modelled in DT, and _all_ the six VP*
supplies are modelled - and we should assume that "GD" is a "power
good" signal, though we don't know that for certain.

What we also don't know on iMX6 is what voltages any of these are
supplied with.

So, as we don't have much certainty here, and we know that adding it
to what is the HDMI transmitter would be wrong, I'd suggest not
modelling it in a generic way at present.

I'm not sure I understand correctly. Are these PHYs exchangeable? Does
the DesignWare IP provide them or could they be provided separately? I
see register definitions for a "source" PHY and a "master" PHY, where
the latter seems to be an I2C controller rather than a PHY. Perhaps it
is used to communicate with an external PHY?

Can somebody give me a quick summary (or point me to documentation) on
how this works?

Perhaps VP_FILT* are sourced from the same supply as VP, so maybe we
don't have to care at the DT level?

A rather common nuisance with these licensed IP blocks is that some of
the details may be hidden in SoC glue, resulting in the interface being
different on each SoC. Given all of the above it sounds like i.MX could
have some internal glue to supply VP and VPH and there'd be no sensible
way to represent them in DT.

Does DesignWare by any chance offer documentation about the IP? If not I
agree that the safest thing to do for now would be to make this Rockchip
specific. If it should prove to be generic after all (in which case i.MX
would seem to provide SoC glue to supply them) we can still promote the
supplies to be generic. They'd need to be optional to handle the i.MX,
though. Or perhaps a dummy regulator could be referenced, representing
the SoC-internal supply to the block. Maybe there even is a (SoC-
specific) way to control this internal regulator?

You're asking questions we have no real answers to - all we have is the
available documentation provided by Freescale - we don't even have the
Rochchip documentation.

>From the Freescale documentation, which documents the HDMI transmitter
entirely separately from the HDMI phy, I would say that the IP is
structured as two entirely separate blocks, and the chip designer is
free to choose an appropriate phy from a range of HDMI phys.

Moreover, in the feature list for the HDMI transmitter, it says (though
this is not applicable to iMX6 - and is probably lifted from the
Synopsis documentation):

"* Option to remove pixel repetition clock from HDMI TX interface for an
  easy integration with third party HDMI TX PHYs"

So - here's the question: what do we do when we find something using the
Synopsis design-ware HDMI transmitter with a different HDMI phy?

Remember, VP, VPH, VP_FILT_* are all part of the HDMI phy according to
the freescale documentation, and not part of the HDMI transmitter.

I'm not sure where you get that from.  Maybe you could give a chapter
reference?

Looking deeper at this HEAC issue, that is a separate, smaller phy which
doesn't have much to do with video - though it remains rather undocumented
in the freescale docs.  That's only going on a block diagram near the
start of the HDMI transmitter chapter though.

We'd be guessing - and that's exactly my point.  Designing something at
DT level based on guesswork is no way to go, especially with a generic
bit of IP which would be re-used across multiple different platforms.

... or it's entirely possible that all these supplies are always fed by
the iMX6 SoC all the time.

That's _exactly_ why I raised the point originally, and said that it should
be Rockchip specific until we know better.  Glad you've caught up with my
thinking. :)

However, my thinking _now_ is that it shouldn't even be modelled as part
of our HDMI transmitter DT blob, but we should be modelling the HDMI
transmitter separately from the HDMI phy as two separate DT blobs, and
then the HDMI phy blob gets the (possibly optional) VPH and VP supplies.

What if someone designs a chip with their own HDMI phy which uses
different supplies?

This is one of the problems I have with DT - DT needs us to describe
the hardware correctly first time around, when we may not have all the
available facts to make proper decisions, and wrong decisions can very
well lead to serious headaches later on because we didn't model
something correctly - and we're stuck with the wrong decisions for ever.

Does it associate any of the registers with the HDMI PHY? According to
the register definitions in drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/dw_hdmi.h the PHY
registers are interleaved with other registers that are likely part of
the HDMI transmitter proper (there are things like HDCP and CEC engines
in that IP as well).

That's just from skimming drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/dw_hdmi.h (register
offsets 0x3000 and the following). The large gap between them and the
preceding FC registers could be an additional indication that they are
indeed separate IP blocks. Then again, the AUD registers start at an
offset of 0x3100, so maybe it's no indication at all.

Are these the registers used to control the PHY that you're referring
to? It seems odd to me that the documentation would specify these
registers interleaved with other registers if the PHYs can be freely
chosen from a set of HDMI PHYs. Perhaps the set of PHYs that can be used
need to expose the same integration interface? Maybe these registers
aren't used to control the PHY at all but rather configure the interface
between transmitter and PHY?

Sorry if these are more questions that the documentation doesn't answer.
Just trying to understand what's going on.

HEAC could be "HDMI Ethernet Audio Control", see here:

Yes, that's what I was implying.

Yes, I agree. One problem that you could run into with such a split is
that the PHY control registers may be interleaved with the registers of
the HDMI transmitter. But perhaps my understanding is wrong and the PHY
is truly controlled via a completely own set of registers. Looking at
the implementation, the HDMI_PHY_* registers seem to be used to control
various aspects of an interface between transmitter and PHY rather than
the PHY itself and it seems like the PHY itself is really an I2C slave
accessed using the I2C master controlled using the HDMI_PHY_I2CM_*
registers.

So perhaps the HDMI transmitter DT node really should expose the PHY as
an I2C child. In fact, looking at HDMI_PHY_I2CM_SLAVE_ADDR_* field
values (lines 870 and 871 in dw_hdmi.h) it should have two children, one
for the "GEN2" PHY and one for the "HEAC" PHY. You could even go as far
as exposing the HDMI_PHY_I2CM_* registers as I2C master and implement
the PHYs as proper I2C client drivers, but that might be overkill,
especially considering that you'd need to have extra API to convey the
HDMI configuration. Still, might be worth considering to make the split
really explicit.

I guess I've answered most of my earlier questions myself...

> What if someone designs a chip with their own HDMI phy which uses
> different supplies?

That's really one more reason to write proper drivers for the PHYs. If
you really ever have to deal with a different PHY chances are that more
than just the supplies will be different, in which case you'd need to
somehow also abstract away the interoperation between HDMI transmitter
and PHY.

I feel the same way. Although there have been occasional exceptions to
the DT ABI stability rule if it could be proven that an existing binding
was completely wrong, I've made the experience that putting as little as
possible into DT (and at the same time resist the temptation of a
generic solution) helps keep the headaches in check.

Fortunately the dw-hdmi driver gets much of this right already (it's
helper code rather than a proper driver), so keeping things like power
supplies specific to a particular integration should be easy to do and
prevent potential future incompatibilities.

The protocol stuff is handled by the HDMI Tx - the phy is the conversion
from the internal digital to the interface domain.

I could write lots to describe it, but really, the best thing to do is
to download the iMX6 documentation and take a peek at it...

https://community.freescale.com/docs/DOC-101840

Particularly, look at the HDMI 3D Phy section, the system level block
diagram (34.1.5.1), and 34.2.1 which has the top level I/O diagram for
just the 3D phy.

The previous section (section 33) covers the HDMI Tx.

Ah, you're getting slightly confused.

All those registers are to do with the HDMI Tx itself.  The block at
0x3000 to 0x3007 is to do with the HDMI Tx receiving various status
signals from the HDMI Phy, such as HPD, rxsense, and whether the phy
PLL is locked (which I'm fairly certain is mis-described, as there is
no output signal from the phy to indicate this, but there is a TX_READY
signal.)

The set at 0x3020-0x3032 are to do with talking to the HDMI phy over
the dedicated I2C interface integrated into the HDMI Tx.  All the
HDMI Phy registers are accessed through this I2C interface.

Exactly, but that didn't happen before this code moved out of
drivers/staging, which is rather unfortunate, but everyone was too busy
to put much thought into that.

This is one of the problems when drivers are taken from BSPs rather than
going away and writing something from documentation: if you start afresh,
you can model the code according to the documentation without any of the
original BSP decisions in place.  If you start from the BSP code, you
have a whole pile of changes you need to identify, and it's very easy to
overlook something, because what you have works.

It's something which _should_ be done nevertheless.  The problem is
finding someone with the time and motivation to do a good job.

Okay, that matches the picture that's been forming in my mind after

Good, that also matches what I understood from reading the driver code.

Interestingly, though, it seems like the PHYs for both i.MX and Rockchip
are register-compatible because they work with the same driver code. It
could be coincidence, or simply that they both use some standard PHY as
provided by DW along with the HDMI transmitter IP.

Most importantly, like you said, any "damage" has already been done and
in order to keep devices working with existing DTBs we'll have to add
fallback code for backwards-compatibility. I'm thinking instantiating
I2C clients for drivers matching the i.MX/Rockchip code directly from
the HDMI bridge driver if no child nodes are found in DTB.

As for finding somebody with the motivation and time to do it, I suspect
we could just wait for the next user of DW HDMI IP and let them deal
with it. Perhaps documenting our findings in the driver would be helpful
if that time comes.

For the matter at hand, I think we all agree that keeping the supplies
Rockchip-specific for now is the right thing to do.

Yep.

Allthough from the discussion and explanations I've now also got the "don't 
make it worse" feeling, so am somehow reluctant to add supplies that also 
might describe this inadequately.

The Rockchip-specific documentation only lists the two supplies as AVDD_1V0, 
AVDD_1V8 with a description of "DC supply voltage for Analog part of HDMI".
The supplies aren't mentioned otherwise at all, so I guess I'll ponder this a 
bit more at first.

Are they controllable from software at all?  If they aren't, then
I'd suggest leaving them out until we have a distinction between
the Tx and Phy - much as we do for iMX6.

they are supplied by the pmic the system uses (named vdd10_lcd and vdd18_lcd 
in the soc manuals/schematics)  and supply the individual output encoder 
analog parts (hdmi, edp, lvds, etc).  So if there is no output at all, they 
should be able to be turned off.
