What if we get rid of the "gpr" property completely?

                return PTR_ERR(hdmi->regmap);

Then we can remove the gpr from the device tree files.

according to the DTSI files in the vanilla kernel DW HDMI IP is found
only on iMX6Q/D and iMX6DL/iMX6S SoCs (but please double check it),
so this approach should work ideally.

I see that the same has already been done in PCIe and SATA drivers,
but please consider to send a similar change against iMX LDB driver
including removal of the property from imx6qdl.dtsi and
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/display/imx/ldb.txt.

And back to DW HDMI IP it seems that after removing "gpr" property
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/display/imx/hdmi.txt can be removed,
because bindings/display/bridge/dw_hdmi.txt replaces it.

After thinking more about this I think we can not get rid of "gpr". If
we have a new i.MX SoC that is not compatible with
"fsl,imx6q-iomuxc-gpr" then the lookup will fail.

The i.MX LDB driver is also used on imx53, so we cannot search for
"fsl,imx6q-iomuxc-gpr" compatible, as it will fail on imx53.

So it seems we need to keep the "gpr" property in this case.

Practically and when it becomes needed it should be possible to add SoC
specific hooks related to IOMUX_GPRx controls on basis of device
compatibles bound to the SoC variant.

Hypothetically if in future there is one more iMX SoC with a similar PCIe
or SATA controller but different GPR controls, to preserve backward
compatibility with old iMX6* DTB firmware the same handling of device
compatibles must be done in the drivers.

Right, I missed it. By chance GPR controls of LDB/LVDS are the same
on iMX53 and iMX6*, otherwise the driver shall care about GPR controls
differently, for example get a SoC specific GPR device compatible.

Nevertheless it is just a suggestion and it may remain just a mental
exercise of how to beautify/standardize iMX device binding descriptions.
