Done :-) I actually had such a patch in my tree before receiving your comment.

It's to find out whether it happens. Before this patch the plane update
occurred after enabling the CRTC (through
drm_atomic_helper_commit_modeset_enables()). With this patch the CRTC can be
disabled at the hardware level, but only if it will be enabled right after
plane update. The state->enable flag should thus always be true, and I added
a WARN_ON to ensure that. I'd like to keep it a bit, we can remove it after
running more tests.

I think that makes sense, but I wonder whether it would make sense to address
that when fixing the currently broken suspend/resume code, as I expect the
get/setup/start sequence to be reworked then.

To help you decide, here's what we would merge now on top of this patch if we
don't wait.

-------------------------------------- 8< ------------------------------------commit 4e43b3a5400e40e8ef7ecc50640a2ca77fb8effa
Author: Laurent Pinchart <laurent.pinchart+renesas@ideasonboard.com>
Date:   Fri Jul 14 03:26:17 2017 +0300

    drm: rcar-du: Perform the initial CRTC setup from rcar_du_crtc_get()
    
    The rcar_du_crtc_get() function is always immediately followed by a call
    to rcar_du_crtc_setup(). Call the later from the former to simplify the
    code, and add a comment to explain how the get and put calls are
    balanced.

The first reason, as you mentioned, is DRM_PLANE_COMMIT_ACTIVE_ONLY, as we
don't need to receive plane updates for disabled CRTCs.

The second reason is patch "[PATCH] drm: rcar-du: Wait for flip completion
instead of vblank in  commit tail" that I have just submitted, which replaces
the drm_atomic_helper_wait_for_vblanks() call with
drm_atomic_helper_wait_flip_done(). I can add a comment to that patch if you
think that would be helpful.
