I do not what will happen at future, it may have more dp controller use
late.

at current soc, below table has only one eDP will not work either.

static const struct msm_dp_config sc7280_dp_cfg = {
        .descs = (const struct msm_dp_desc[]) {
                [MSM_DP_CONTROLLER_1] = { .io_start = 0x0aea0000,
.connector_type = DRM_MODE_CONNECTOR_eDP, .wide_bus_en = true },

        .num_descs = 1,
};

we have no control of drm_bridge_add().

Since drm perform screen update following bridge chain sequentially, we
have to make sure primary always update first.
