The change fixed MST + SST daisy chain and S3 scenarios. The issue shows huge delay in MST + SST daisy chain, and soft hang in S3 resume.

The aux sequence is changed by failed iteration search in drm_connector_for_each_possible_encoder(). 
The failure of searching for the best encoder for the connector due to the miss of attached encoder in the process of adding MST connector. The iteration search takes time to push drm_dp_send_enum_path_resources() aux transaction after the mode probe, and causes conflict to drm_dp_mst_i2c_xfer(), leading to the aux transaction timeout.
