Hi Vladimir,

Thank you for the patch.

If it "may" contain one more specific value, when should that value be
present, and when can it be absent ?

You should explain when the reg property is required and when it isn't. This
will in my opinion require a more detailed explanation of the DT model for
this device.

As Marek mentioned, a regulator would be better. I would make it a mandatory
property, as the device always needs to be powered.

This doesn't seem to be a device description to me, it's a software
configuration. You should handle it in drivers.

This sounds the same. How about giving a real life example of a case where you
need to set these two properties to override the pin strapping, for the
purpose of discussing the DT bindings ?

I assume those two are mutually exclusive, this should be documented, or you
could merge the two properties into one. Same comment as above though, why do
you need an override in DT ?

We have a standard property in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/media/video-
interfaces.txt for this, please use it.

This makes sense in DT in my opinion, as EMC is a system property. I wonder
however if exposing the hardware register directly is the best option. Could
you elaborate on how a system designer will select which value to use, in
order to find the best DT description ?

As mentioned in my review of the cover letter I don't think this is necessary.
You can make the serializer and deserializer I2C controllers without subnodes.
Same goes for GPIO control.

Extra blank line ?
