SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 00/10] drm: Fix EDID reading on ti-sn65dsi86 by introducing the DP AUX bus
For patches 5, and 6:

Reviewed-by: Lyude Paul <>

This week got really busy so I wasn't able to look at the rest of them, but next
week is going to be a lot less busy so I should be able to look at them then

Note: I deal with a lot of emails and have a lot of bugs on my plate. If you've
asked me a question, are waiting for a review/merge on a patch, etc. and I
haven't responded in a while, please feel free to send me another email to check
on my status. I don't bite!
