Use the ddc pointer provided by the generic connector.

When reading this code, it looks strange that we set connector->ddc
*before* the call to init the connector.
One could risk that drm_connector_init() used memset(..) to clear all
fields or so, and it would break this order.
As it is today the code works as I read it.

I verified the code of drm_connector_init() and cannot find any memset()
invocations there. What is your actual concern?

My concern is that drm_connector_init() maybe sometime in the future
will init all fileds in drm_connector, so we loose any assingments
done to drm_connector from *before* we called the init function.

Moving the assignment to after drm_connector_init() would not
let us depend on the actual implmentation of drm_connector_init().

I think this echoes my concern about the implicit order of operation. It
seems too easy to get this wrong. If you don't want to add an additional
interface for setting the ddc field, why not add a dedicated initializer
function that sets the ddc field? Something like this.

int drm_connector_init_with_ddc(connector, funcs, ..., ddc)
{
	ret = drm_connector_init(connector, funcs, ...);
	if (ret)
		return ret;

	if (!ddc)
		return 0;

	connector->ddc = ddc;
	/* set up sysfs */

	return 0;
}

Best regards
Thomas

True. I will send a v5 soon.

Hi,

I'm glad to see this work moving forward!

I know this comment comes late to the party, but I'm a slightly
suprised to see the above instead of implementing drm_connector_init
in terms of drm_connector_init_with_ddc, as we typically do.

Namely, something along these lines (code might not even build!):

This might be seen as bikeshed but it seems there's value keeping all the init
code in the same place, as opposed to scattered.

Unless there are reasons for the current code, that I'm missing?
