Thanks for the Ack! Would you expect this patch to land through
"drm-misc", or do you expect it to go through some other tree?

./scripts/ --scm -f drivers/gpu/drm/ingenic/ingenic-drm-drv.c

...does not show that this driver normally goes through drm-misc, but
it also doesn't show that it goes through any other tree so maybe it's
just an artifact of the way it's tagged in the MAINTAINERS file? If
it's fine for this to go through drm-misc, I'll probably land it (with
your Ack and Maxime's Review) sooner rather than later just to make
this patch series less unwieldy.

FWIW, I think that at least a few other DRM drivers handle this by
doing some of their resource allocation / acquiring in the probe()
function and then only doing things in the bind() that absolutely need
to be in the bind. ;-)
