Ok.

Didn;t realize the location. Thanks for pointing out.

This para can go away.

No, it is required. Driver has been using the by_name for clarity.

Correct. This follows the same model as RPM SMD driver.

This format helps preserve the order in which the TCS are designed in
the firmware. Thats additional information that is described by the
cells.

Thanks,
