drm/amd/display: DC I2C review
While reviewing I2C in DC identified a few places. Added a couple to the TODO list. 1) Connector info read See get_ext_display_connection_info On some boards the connector information has to be read through a special I2C channel. This line is only used for this purpose and only on driver init. 2) SCDC stuff This should all be reworked to go through DRM's SCDC code. When this is done some unnecessary I2C code can be retired as well. 3) Max TMDS clock read See dal_ddc_service_i2c_query_dp_dual_mode_adaptor This should happen in DRM as well. I haven't checked if there's currently functionality in DRM. If not we can propose something. 4) HDMI retimer programming Some boards have an HDMI retimer that we need to program to pass PHY compliance. 1 & 3 might be a good exercise if someone is looking for things to do. v2: Merge dp_dual_mode_adaptor TODO Acked-by: Alex Deucher <> Signed-off-by: Harry Wentland <> Acked-by: Daniel Vetter <> Signed-off-by: Alex Deucher <>

-11. Remove existing i2c implementation from DC

- post-merging (perhaps by not including any of this in the linux DC

- a lot less than the glue code to interface with the dc-provided

+11. Remove dc/i2caux. This folder can be somewhat misleading. It's basically an
+overy complicated HW programming function for sendind and receiving i2c/aux

+HW blocks.

stuff just isn't up to the challenges either. We need to figure out something
that integrates better with DRM and linux debug printing, while not being
useless with filtering output. dynamic debug printing might be an option.
