[PATCH v4 0/5] MST DSC support in drm-mst

OK-done reviewing, but there's some stuff missing here. The PBN bandwidth
checks in https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/325604/?series=65423&rev=3
need to be moved into drm_dp_mst_atomic_check(), along with moving amdgpu over to using drm_dp_mst_atomic_check(). Doing so will also give us PBN bandwidth checks in both i915 and nouveau as well, and keeps the bandwidth calculation where it should be.

Additionally, you still need to move the code here into an MST atomic helper
or drm_dp_mst_atomic_check() as well:


Unless I'm mistaken, adding each CRTC which has a connector whose PBN requires
recalculation into the atomic state is something every DRM driver is going to
need to do. And, you can do this more easily by adding PBN information into
drm_dp_mst_topology_state. Yes-it's a lot of locks, but since every connector
in an MST topology is sharing the bandwidth on the same link it's kind of
expected. I already know I'm going to have to do basically the same thing with
every driver once I've got the time to actually implement fallback link rate
retraining with MST topologies.

If you need help figuring out how to structure this in a way that works for
all drivers, I'm willing to help and I'm sure Manasi is as well.
