I guess I missed this, but there's a few fundamental things here first

- patch 2 is fallout from the fairly abitrary split between ->detect and
  ->get_modes. There's not really any good reason for that, I think we can
  just always call ->get_modes if ->detect says the connector is
  connected. There's more than just dp and hdmi (that's simply the 2
  things we test in CI using chamelium).

- the problem is bigger than just the edid changing (e.g. when repeaters
  change, or when something else changes aside from the edid, e.g. in dp
  aux, like how many lanes the dp cable has). Plus we have this long-term
  idea to give userspace a better idea about which connector exactly has
  changed. Therefor:

  1. add a new drm_connector->detect_epoque counter.
  2. Increment that counter every time something has changed, i.e. from
  probe helpers (we can push this down into the detect wrappers) when
  connector->status has changed, or when we update the edid blob.
  3. probe helpers look for changes in ->detect_epoque to decided whether
  to fire the uevent or not.
  4. long term we could expose the ->detect_epoque as a read-only
  property, or at least supply information about which connector caused
  the uevent using the new drm_sysfs_connector_status_event() (see the
  patch from Ram "[PATCH v3 09/10] drm: uevent for connector status

I think that gives us a much better long term foundation than adding lots
of hacks.

Cheers, Daniel
