You didn't address my question about this. Obviously this will avoid
a null pointer dereference. But you have to also explain why this
change is correct.

If it's good enough to just look at the capabilities of the DRM device
(not the upstream bridge) on PPC and ia64, why not do that everywhere
and forget about the bridge completely?
