That would not be useful I'm afraid, since the DSI clocks will be
switched off in the absence of a dsi DT node in host1x, so you would end
up with a blank screen. Our best shot at display for the moment would be
HDMI, but I need to spend some more time on it.

Proper internal panel support would require a panel driver with the
proper DSI initialization sequences. It is in my pipe.

Yes, absolutely right. On a more general note I feel like DTs could gain
clarity if they had more comments (e.g. for pinmuxing which are a quite
heavy block otherwise), do you have any objection to this? (I guess not,
but so far the rule seems to be "no comment in DT" :P )

That's fine, I wanted to avoid sending another patch soon after just for
that particular change.

They are unrelated actually. With non-removable the driver expects the
device to always be there since boot, and does not check for the card to
be removed/added after boot. broken-cd indicates there is no CD line and
the device should be polled regularly.

For the Wifi chip, non-removable would be the correct setting
hardware-wise, but there is a trap: the chip has its reset line asserted
at boot-time, and you need to set GPIO 229 to de-assert it. Only after
that will the device be detected on the SDIO bus. Since it lacks a CD
line, it must be polled, hence the broken-cd property.

This also raises another, redundant problem with DT bindings: AFAIK we
currently have no way to let the system know the device will only appear
after a given GPIO is set. It would also be nice to be able to give some
parameters to the Wifi driver through the DT (like the OOB interrupt).
Right now the Wifi chip is brought up by exporting the GPIO and writing
to it from user-space, and the OOB interrupt is not used.

Otherwise, Wifi works great with the brcmfmac driver and NVRAM file
extracted from Android.

If they don't have the GPIO requirement that SHIELD has, I don't think
it is necessary. non-removable is probably a better property for
soldered Wifi chips.

I'm not sure about cap-sdio-irq, it doesn't seem to make a difference
for SHIELD Wifi.

The setting works for me and the binding is documented, so maybe we can
keep it as-is?

Thanks for the review - v2 will be on the way, as well as Tegra Note 7
hopefully.

Alex.
