I think the analysis is correct, but this is not the correct fix since
DRM_KMS_HELPER
is not user-selectable. (Almost) all other drivers that rely on DRM_KMS_HELPER
use 'select' for this, and mixing the two risks running into circular
dependencies.

I see that there are already some 'depends on DRM_KMS_HELPER' in bridge
and panel drivers, so it's possible that we have to fix them all at the same to
do this right. I ran into another problem like this the other day and
I'm currently
testing with the patch below, but I have not posted that yet since I am not
fully convinced that this is the correct fix either.

drm/mipi-dbi: select CONFIG_DRM_KMS_HELPER

The driver fails to build when the KMS helpers are disabled:

This is fairly hard to hit in randconfig drivers, but it eventually
did trigger for me in a configuration where all other DRM drivers
are loadable modules, but DRM_PANEL_WIDECHIPS_WS2401 was built-in.
