I've now tested the AM5 EVM and the LCD panel worked out of the box. I tried 
to load all modules before panel_dpi and the panel then stopped working. After 
a bit of investigation it turns out that the dpi_init_port() and 
sdi_init_port() functions can return probe deferral, but their return value is 
ignored by the caller. The problem pre-exists this series, the patch below 
fixes it. Surprisingly enough given the extent of the rework, it doesn't 
conflict with this series, I'll thus place it towards the start of v2.

Subject: [PATCH] drm/omap: dss: Handle DPI and SDI port initialization

The dpi_init_port() and sdi_init_port() functions can return errors but
their return value is ignored. This prevents both probe failures and
probe deferral from working correctly. Propagate the errors up the call

You're right. I'll drop that patch.
