OK, it makes sense to solve one problem at a time.

Wei Ni, would you ensure these naming rules:

- unmodified functions: keep the original function name hdmi_*
  (if the original function name is intelhdmi_*, rename it to hdmi_*)

- modified function: rename function name to nvhdmi_*
  (if the original function name is hdmi_*, rename it to intel_hdmi_*)

And do the same for data structures, enums, variables, etc.

This hopefully will make it easier to do the future merge.
