I'm going to have to retract that: I just noticed that this patch breaks
eDP for Venice2 (and presumably all Tegra124 Nyan boards as well, though
I don't have those to test with).

My description above isn't quite correct. For eDP device we do use the
ddc-i2c-bus property in DT to denote which I2C bus to use for probing
the EDID. So the reason why eDP now breaks is because the simple-panel
driver will look for the I2C adapter, not find a matching one and defer
probe (indefinitely).

A, perhaps nicer, alternative I found to make it work is the below
patch. Would that be more reasonable? Looping in Wolfram.

Taking a step back from the immediate breakage: why do you need the
ddc-i2c-bus phandle on the eDP panel at all? I would consider this DT
buggy, as it tries to point to something which is purely a software
construct. It's not like you are likely to use any other i2c adapter to
get the eDP panel EDID than the eDP AUX adapter.

I know this is trading different levels of breakage, but without this
patch I'm forced to describe a (not actually existent) i2c-bus in DT on
eDP bridges, to shut down the warnings from the i2c core when it tries
to populate child devices of the bridge that aren't i2c devices.

So the reason why we have the ddc-i2c-bus property is because the panel
is a free-standing device tree node and therefore doesn't have any
knowledge of AUX. I guess one could argue that this is itself a problem
and I'd agree with that. But things are what they are, and we have this
device tree that used to work but this patch renders these devices more
or less useless (they don't really come with a debug UART or anything,
so display is the only thing that you can use to diagnose issues).

Perhaps the solution is that we need to make eDP panels children of the
AUX adapter that "controls" them, much like we do for DSI panels. If no
device tree maintainers has a problem with that I'm willing to break
ABI here because these boards don't have the DTB in a ROM and therefore
users can (and likely will anyway) update the DTB along with the kernel.
But I think we'd have to either find a solution to this really quickly
or revert this patch and give it another try when we do have a proper
solution.

I can somewhat agree with your assessment that the AUX-I2C adapter does
not have a place in DT. However, there could technically be any number
of devices behind that I2C bus (though practically there will likely
only ever be an EDID and maybe something like DDC/CI, SCDC or HDCP, all
of which can easily be probed in a display driver).

Still, even if we all agree that we shouldn't represent this particular
bus in device tree, we still need a replacement mechanism to allow eDP
panels to get at the AUX (and I2C-over-AUX) adapters that control them.
A parent/child relationship seems like the most straightforward approach
because we'd know exactly what struct device * to get the I2C adapter
from and we could even get a hold of the AUX adapter if we want to do
something to the panel's DPCD directly.

Rob, anyone: any ideas on how to fix this? What would be the correct way
to do this in DT?

This is very much standard procedure, at least in I2C land. The above
patch would allow us to remove all of the above and instead rely on
matching on the parent device's ->of_node. The more I think about it,
the more I'm convinced that that's actually the correct thing to do.
i2c_adapter.dev.of_node should only be used to override the parent's
device tree node.

I agree. Thinking about it a bit more your proposed patch is actually a
quite neat solution for the problem at hand and would allow us drop
this standard, yet bad, practice of i2c adapters sharing the device
node with their parent.

I'm wondering, though, if my patch wouldn't actually restore the errors
that you were seeing. Looking at of_i2c_register_devices() and
of_i2c_register_device(), you're probably seeing the "of_i2c: invalid
reg on %pOF" errors.

These happen for children of either the i2c-bus subnode or the adapter's
node itself, so it seems like the above patch wouldn't break this.
However, if we remove setting i2c_adapter->dev.of_node from all of the
controller drivers, then we wouldn't see any children get added for any
of them anymore.

The fix for that would of course be to do this:

	-		bus = of_node_get(adap->dev.of_node);
	+		bus = of_node_get(adap->dev.parent->of_node);

but then we'd be back to square one and you'd start seeing the errors
again for AUX-over-I2C controllers.

Other solution is to add node check in loop inside
of_i2c_register_devices, if node does not contain compatible property,
it should be skipped.
And there exists already other solution: "For I2C adapters that have
child nodes that are a mixture of both I2C devices and non-I2C devices,
the 'i2c-bus' subnode can be used for populating I2C devices [1].
