Before the introduction of the wait_hpd_asserted() callback in commit
841d742f094e ("drm/dp: Add wait_hpd_asserted() callback to struct
drm_dp_aux") the API between panel drivers and DP AUX bus drivers was
that it was up to the AUX bus driver to wait for HPD in the transfer()

Now wait_hpd_asserted() has been added. The two panel drivers that are
DP AUX endpoints use it. See commit 2327b13d6c47 ("drm/panel-edp: Take
advantage of wait_hpd_asserted() in struct drm_dp_aux") and commit
3b5765df375c ("drm/panel: atna33xc20: Take advantage of
wait_hpd_asserted() in struct drm_dp_aux"). We've implemented
wait_hpd_asserted() in the MSM DP driver as of commit e2969ee30252
("drm/msm/dp: move of_dp_aux_populate_bus() to eDP probe()"). There is
no longer any reason for long wait in the AUX transfer() function.
Remove it.

NOTE: the wait_hpd_asserted() is listed as "optional". That means it's
optional for the DP AUX bus to implement. In the case of the MSM DP
driver we implement it so we can assume it will be called.

How do we enforce that for any new edp panels to be used with MSM, the panels should atleast invoke wait_hpd_asserted()?

I agree that since MSM implements it, even though its listed as optional, we can drop this additional wait. So nothing wrong with this patch for current users including sc8280xp, sc7280 and sc7180.

But, does there need to be some documentation that the edp panels not using the panel-edp framework should still invoke wait_hpd_asserted()?

Since its marked as optional, what happens if the edp panel driver, skips calling wait_hpd_asserted()?

Now, since the wait from MSM is removed, it has a potential to fail.

ALSO NOTE: the wait wasn't actually _hurting_ anything and wasn't even
causing long timeouts, but it's still nice to get rid of unneeded
code. Specificaly it's not truly needed because to handle other DP
drivers that can't power on as quickly (specifically parade-ps8640) we
already avoid DP AUX transfers for eDP panels that aren't powered
on. See commit 8df1ddb5bf11 ("drm/dp: Don't attempt AUX transfers when
eDP panels are not powered").
