This patch series aims at adding support for runtime bus-format
negotiation between all elements of the
'encoder -> bridges -> connector/display' section of the pipeline.

In order to support that, we need drm bridges to fully take part in the
atomic state validation process, which requires adding a
drm_bridge_state and a new drm_bridge_funcs.atomic_check() hook.
Once those basic building blocks are in place, we can add new hooks to
allow bus format negotiation (those are called just before
->atomic_check()). The bus format selection is done at runtime by
testing all possible combinations across the whole bridge chain until
one is reported to work.

No Major changes in this v4. I think I addressed all comments I got
from Neil and Laurent (thanks for the detailed reviews BTW). Note that
this version only contains core changes. Once those changes are merged
I'll send the imx/panel/lvds-codec specific bits.

A more detailed changelog is provided in each patch.

This patch series is also available here [1].

Thanks,

Boris
