Have you tested the option 4 and 5 there too?

Ok, great, so Chen-Yu was right :)

I guess the option 5 (DCLK/2 phase 0) is still to early, just like
you've shown in the previous captures?

At lot of things are not described, unfortunately...

You can base that on the compatible, and add a field in the
sun4i_tcon_quirks structure, that will avoid the if statements you
mentionned.

So that would mean sampling at raising edge on this one??

And falling edge?

If so, and if remember the captures properly, the sampling would occur
right before the rise, and not really around the fall.

Would 2/3 be better here?

I guess we can make that part applicable to all SoCs, we haven't seen
any significant differences on those part.
