the special omap-drm-dsi panel support will disappear. A patch series by Sebastian Reichel is in review and may appear in 5.8-rc1. This will break the current pyra dsi panel driver which must a) be moved to drm panels b) modified to handle the different API Initial experiments had almost worked, but the panel wasn't initialized. Currently it is not exactly clear what the latest code base for the omap-drm-dsi series is to test with.

More specific we have to move the driver from: drivers/gpu/drm/omapdrm/displays -> drivers/gpu/drm/panels The new code (not tested/not working) is here: http://git.goldelico.com/?p=letux-kernel.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/ letux/boe-w677-dsi-panel

I think this has been done a while ago...
