Re: [PATCH 2/2] dt-bindings: display: bridge: TI FPD-Link III Serializer/Deserializer




Hi Vince,

Thank you for the patch.

Are you aware of the "[PATCH 0/7] mfd/pinctrl: add initial support of TI
DS90Ux9xx ICs" patch series
(https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20181012060314.GU4939@dell/T/) ?

That property is a software policy, not a system description. It doesn't
belong in DT.

The connection between the serializer and deserializer, as well as
between those two chips and the other part of the display (or camera)
pipeline should be described using ports (see the OF graph bindings).

This doesn't correspond to hardware, you shouldn't have such a node in
DT. Instead your drivers should operate properly using the two nodes
above, corresponding to the serializer and deserializer.

This is very device-specific and would require the consumer to be aware
of fpdlink. You should instead use OF graph to describe connections.
