That's not correct. The connector type reported by DRM to userspace can be used as a hint to information the user about connectors. Displaying a "Please connect a monitor to the HDMI connector" is confusing when the system has a DVI connector. > And the DRM driver does not do anything from the knowledge of the > connector type in the DT.
