drm/i915/lvds: ditch ->prepare special case
commit 520c41cf2fa029d1e8b923ac2026f96664f17c4b upstream. LVDS is the first output where dpms on/off and prepare/commit don't perfectly match. Now the idea behind this special case seems to be that for simple resolution changes on the LVDS we don't need to stop the pipe, because (at least on newer chips) we can adjust the panel fitter on the fly. There are a few problems with the current code though: - We still stop and restart the pipe unconditionally, because the crtc helper code isn't flexible enough. - We show some ugly flickering, especially when changing crtcs (this the crtc helper would actually take into account, but we don't implement the encoder->get_crtc callback required to make this work properly). So it doesn't even work as advertised. I agree that it would be nice to do resolution changes on LVDS (and also eDP) whithout blacking the screen where the panel fitter allows to do that. But imo we should implement this as a special case a few layers up in the mode set code, akin to how we already detect simple framebuffer changes (and only update the required registers with ->mode_set_base). Until this is all in place, make our lives easier and just rip it out. Also note that this seems to fix actual bugs with enabling the lvds output, see: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/intel-gfx/2012-July/018614.html Acked-by: Chris Wilson <chris@chris-wilson.co.uk> Cc: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de> Cc: Giacomo Comes <comes@naic.edu> Tested-by: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de> Signed-Off-by: Daniel Vetter <daniel.vetter@ffwll.ch> Cc: Haitao Zhang <haitao.zhang@canonical.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
