I'm thinking the crtc->base.enabled check is actually pointless.
AFAICS we should never get here with crtc->base.enabled==false and

We anyway re-enable the bifurcation bit when we do the mode_set.
Actually that in itself could be a maybe a bug. We'd turn off the
bifurcation bit when both pipes B and C are disabled based on
prepare_pipes, but we only do the mode_set based on modeset_pipes.
But currently we are saved by the fact that those two bitmasks are
the same.

Another potential bug I found is that we always set the bifurcation
bit in mode_set, even if we're not using FDI. So if we have eg.
pipe B enabled w/ FDI using 4 lanes, and then we enable pipe C w/ EDP,
we'd still flip the bifurcation bit in pipe C's mode_set and destroy pipe
B's output. The fix would be to call ivybridge_update_fdi_bc_bifurcation()
only when has_pch_encoder==true.
