Why would we use three indices for an soc that only has two indices
possible? This is not a real problem?

What does this mean? Are you talking about the list of bridges in drm
core, i.e. 'bridge_list'?

Wouldn't that be "broken" again if we decided to change drm_bridge_add()
to add to the list head instead of list tail? Or if somehow
msm_dp_modeset_init() was called in a different order so that the DP
bridge was added before the eDP bridge?
