Hi Rob, thanks for the review!

I will add a commit message, vendor prefix to non-standard props, and
remove '_' in the next revision.

I struggled with 'audio-port' property quite a bit.

Looking at the datasheet a bit closer
(http://dev.gateworks.com/datasheets/TDA19971-datasheet-rev3.pdf) I
see that the audio output port consisting of WS, AP[0:3], CLK really
only supports I2S and S/PDIF output modes. The AP[0:3] provide support
for up to 8 audio channels. The way these pins are used is defined in
Table 5/6/7 in the datasheet but I think that the dt perhaps only
needs to number of data lines (1-4) (which could also be represented
as channels (1-8)), and a clock multiplier which could be described as
a 'mclk-fs' multiplication factor like simple-audio bindings does.

What would your recommendation be here?

right - that makes sense. I'll talk to the maintainer of the i.MX CSI
driver to see what they think.

ok. My example was a mistake anyway and I propose a single output port such as:

The device node must contain one 'port' child node for its digital output
video port, in accordance with the video interface bindings defined in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/media/video-interfaces.txt.

Example:
port {
tda1997x_to_ipu1_csi0_mux: endpoint {
remote-endpoint =
<&ipu1_csi0_mux_from_parallel_sensor>;
bus-width = <16>;
hsync-active = <1>;
vsync-active = <1>;
data-active = <1>;
};
};

Perhaps, but I feel like the vidout-portcfg is pretty confusing and
wanted to provide some different mappings as examples. The
vidout-portcfg property allows you to shift the bits around on the
output pins per 4-bit groups as well as reverse their order and
different defines are used depending on RGB444/YUV444/YUV422/BT656. I
could provide just portcfg examples above the full dts example though
under the short description of 'nxp,vidout-portcfg'.

Regards,

Tim
