Subject[PATCH 0/7] mfd/pinctrl: add initial support of TI DS90Ux9xx ICs
Date
The published drivers describe the essential and generic parts of
TI DS90Ux9xx series of ICs, which allow to transfer video, audio and
control signals between FPD-Link III serializers and deserializers.

The placement of TI DS90Ux9xx I2C client driver was selected to be
drivers/mfd as the most natural location of a true MFD driver,
apparently drivers/media/i2c is for another type of device drivers,
also DS90Ux9xx I2C bridge subcontroller driver is placed nearby,
because drivers/i2c for it would be an inappropriate destination
as well. Informally the TI DS90Ux9xx ICs serve a similar function
to SMSC/Microchip MOST, and its drivers are in drivers/staging/most,
the final destination is unknown to me. Please feel free to advise
a better location for the published drivers, at the moment the core
drivers are in drivers/mfd, but I select linux-media as a mailing list.

The published drivers instantly give a chance to test video bridge
functionality to a TI DS90Ux9xx deserializer equipped display panel
with the aide of Laurent's "lvds-encoder" driver by misusing it
as a generic and transparent drm bridge with no particular LVDS
specifics in it, for that it should be sufficient just to add the
corresponding device node and input/output ports as children of
a serializer connected to an application controller.

While the selected scheme of IC description by a list of subdevices,
where each one described in its own device node, works pretty well,
it might lead to unnecessary overcomplicated description of connections
between subdevices on serializer and deserializer sides, i.e. for
proper description of links/connections video serializer should
be linked to video deserializer, audio serializer should be linked
to audio deserializer and so on, however formally there is just one
FPD-III Link connection between two ICs.

The series of patches is rebased on top of linux-next, and there are
more changes in the queue to provide better support of TI DS90Ux9xx ICs.

The introduction to the ICs and drivers can be found in my presentation
