Hi Rob,

Thanks for taking the time to review the patches

Goldfish FB is actively used by all supported architectures in Android (Intel/ARM/MIPS)
and is part of Android emulator project and so far, there have been no limitations in
AOSP for using it.

We have already tested this particular version of the driver for MIPS
Ranchu virtual platform (introduced in this series) which is DT based and
therefore we needed to integrate device tree support for this driver.

> bindings/display/

Did you mean to use this location instead of "bindings/goldfish/"?

Kind regards,
Miodrag

bindings/display/

I don't know that this should even go upstream. There's no upstream
qemu support for goldfish-fb. Maybe this is a minor driver change, but
FB drivers are being replaced with DRM drivers. And the time for AOSP
supporting framebuffer drivers is limited I think with HWC2 and
explicit fence support in DRM.
