There are 2 directories which contain display controller drivers for
i.MX SoCs:
a. drivers/gpu/drm/imx - i.MX51/53/6qdl IPUv3, i.MX8mq DCSS and
i.MX8qm/qxp DPU([1], not landed yet)
b. drivers/gpu/drm/mxsfb - i.MX23/28/6sx/8mq LCDIF and i.MX8mp
LCDIFv3([2], not landed yet)

Bridges added in drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/imx make it possible to share
bridge drivers across display controllers. I see chance to use the
LVDS Display Bridge(LDB) helper(imx-ldb-helper.c) for i.MX6sx LDB.
