Hi Alexandre,

I recently posted a proposal for brcmfmac DT binding [1]. I did receive
some comments, but it would be great if you (and/or others involved) had
a look at it as well and give me some feedback. DT work still needs to
grow on me.

With in-band interrupts, indeed. The HOST_WAKE signal is the OOB
interrupt which would need to be provided in the device-tree.

Arend
