What can I reply to specifically? From what I can tell, the
patches have changed to this 'opp-required' thing in the past
week and the position of 'generic OPP layer interprets magic
values' doesn't look to have changed. Is that the summary? I can
look deeply at the patches tomorrow.

I'd prefer either that, or some tree here that we can look at. I
said this last time, I'm having a really hard time seeing how
everything is going to work. The little drip of code, then DT
binding, then maybe a small change in dts files, then maybe some
code that uses the new APIs, etc. is pretty annoying. From my
perspective you've chopped the problem up into pieces that don't
stand on their own and then started sending patches for some
parts without showing the overall result. It's like we're being
taken on a ride in your development workflow, and we don't get to
see what's coming around the corner, and the only assumption I
can make is that you don't know either.

I'm actually confused how any of the code is even tested or used.
It looks like things are getting merged without any users, for
what exactly I'm not sure. Please, please, get an end-to-end
solution going and actually use the code from day one on a real
device that can use it.

Sorry for the rant, but my inbox keeps filling with patches for
this series and I have no idea what's going on.
