So I got some questions and concerns off-list. This was one of the
concerns. That tcpm_name is now the actual port device name, so I'm
afraid this is not acceptable.

You can't use device name as a reference, ever. There is no way to
guarantee that a device with a specific name is what you meant it to
be by the time it's accessed.

If you need to deal with a device, then you have to get an actual
reference to it (class_find_device_by_fwnode() should work in this

Ideally you would get the reference in the place where you actually
use it (so drm_connector.c or more likely drm_sysfs.c) but that would
mean a dependency on typec in there, if the component framework or
something like that (device links?) is not an option. You could of
course try to confine the dependency somehow. drm_class does not have
implementation for dev_uevent, so you could take over that as a
temporary solution.

The only way to avoid the dependency completely would be to pass that
device reference from here through your drm bridge chain somehow.
But that's also really fragile. But it could be acceptable as a
temporary solution perhaps, if it's even possible.
