Thanks for the review!

I'd rather someone at Qualcomm do this. Do you have a suggested
person? The reason I feel that Qualcomm needs to get involved is that
I see that when I look at the file you refer to says it's for:

"qcom,ufs-phy-qmp-20nm" for 20nm ufs phy,
"qcom,ufs-phy-qmp-14nm" for legacy 14nm ufs phy,
"qcom,msm8996-ufs-phy-qmp-14nm" for 14nm ufs phy
present on MSM8996 chipset.

...but there's another Qualcomm file, 'qcom-qmp-phy.txt'. That
handles the compatible string:

"qcom,sdm845-qmp-ufs-phy" for UFS QMP phy on sdm845.

So I'm a little confused. Should the SDM845 UFS PHY been handled by
the older UFS PHY driver? ...or should all the older UFS PHYs be
moved to be handled by the newer QMP PHY driver? ...or are they
really different hardware blocks, in which case how would you describe
the difference (both are described as UFS QMP PHYs I think).

BTW: I have a patch attempting to fixup the QMP PHY bindings at
<https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20181012213632.252346-1-dianders@chromium.org>.
