Thanks for testing.

I have cardhu and Ventana and unfortunately both does not support the
key pad matrix. Both are on gpio keys.
I tested this patch series (along with recent kbc patches) on t114
platform Dalmore, it is 3x3 matrix.
Yes I made a hack on the board-dt-* file for getting proper clock. I did
not send similar change as this will not be very much used when we will
we in CCF.

If clk_get() failed then it should be return ptr_err. if not then it
need to change almost all driver i.e. i2c/spi.
If clk_get(0 returns NULL then should be part of the clock CCF changes
series to change here also.

No, Currently clk_get() returns the PTR_ERR and probe fail. This is well
tested till now. Something changed with CCF.

This is something our kbc controller reset and clock design.
KBC controller is on Always Power ON domain so that it can work even
when system is in sleep.
The KBC clock is enabled through two places, PMC control register and
CAR register set.
KBC controller is only reset through PMC control register.
This is not well implemented either on our downstream or in mainline.
Sometime back I tried to implement it in downstream but was having lots
of comment and not able to complete this. Possibly we will talk
internally that how can we implement this.

I have my local change for the AUXDATA board file which I did not sent.
I think CCF does not require and this is the reason. I can sent this if
it needed.

Yes, hack is required here. Either hack in the board file for auxdata or
in dts file for clock entry when you have ccf ready.

I did not see any issue with the 3x3 matrix. I think all these about is
to tuning debaunce and other parameter also. Another thing is that to
make sure that all pinmuxes are properly configured.

However, again I will try to enable kbc on harmony and run it.
