The chrome compositor handles this case[1]. If the link status is set to
bad and there are non-zero number of modes on a connected connector it
resets the status to good to try again.

I suspect this is why my trogdor device turns off after rebooting when I
apply a ChromeOS update with the lid closed and DP connected. Userspace
wants to know that a display is connected, but this driver is still link
training by the time userspace boots up so we don't see any drm
connector indicating status is connected. No drm connectors connected
means the OS should shutdown.

Is this driver used with android?
