Subject[PATCH 1/1] ARM: dts: Make DP a consumer of DISP1 power domain on Exynos5420
Commit ea08de16eb1b ("ARM: dts: Add DISP1 power domain for exynos5420")
added a device node for the Exynos5420 DISP1 power domain but dit not
make the DP controller a consumer of that power domain.

This causes an "Unhandled fault: imprecise external abort" error if the
exynos-dp driver tries to access the DP controller registers and the PD
was turned off. This lead to a kernel panic and a complete system hang.

Make the DP controller device node a consumer of the DISP1 power domain
to ensure that the PD is turned on when the exynos-dp driver is probed.

Fixes: ea08de16eb1b ("ARM: dts: Add DISP1 power domain for exynos5420")
Signed-off-by: Javier Martinez Canillas <>


This latent bug was not exposed before since drivers for other devices
marked as DISP1 power domain consumers were probed before exynos-dp so
the PD was already on which made possible to access the DP registers.

But "regulator: Defer lookup of supply to regulator_get" [0] that is in
linux-next from a couple of days now, changed the order on which the
drivers' probes succeed so the PD was disabled during exynos-dp probe.

Exynos5420 machines with a display such as the Exynos5420 Peach Pit and
Exynos5800 Peach Pi were failing to boot due this issue, i.e: [1].


Could you please confirm $subject fixes the issue catched by your farm?


This patch conflicts with your Exynos5 phandle notation cleanup [2] but
I preferred to send it on top of linux-next instead of making your series
a dependency since it fixes a very important bug that had caused -next to
be broken on these matchines for days now.

Thanks a lot and best regards,
