After some discussion and failed patch sets trying to convey
the right timing information between the display engine and
a bridge using the connector, I try instead to use an optional
timing information container in the bridge itself, so that
display engines can retrieve it from any bridge and use it to
determine how to drive outputs.

Hello Linus,

Thank you for the patch.

Could you keep these alphabetically sorted ?

Would it be clearer to reuse the DRM_BUS_FLAG_PIXDATA_*EDGE flags here ?

I'd write s/rising or falling edge/clock edge/ to be consistent with the 
setup_time_ps description (and because that's also clearer in my opinion). If 
you want to explicitly tell which clock edge, you could write "the clock 
sampling edge" for both.

The rest of the patch looks good to me.
