Subject[PATCH] si2157: Add support for Logilink VG0022A.
Date
Dear Mauro!

Thanks for your reply, I tried to address most of your concerns,
so please bear with me (especially this is my first email with
git send-email). :)

Done.

Done. I extracted power_up into its own function, chip querying is now
done in probe. I don't have enough knowledge about hardware to do the
right thing on my own. If there is anybody willing to guide me I will
spend some time on it.

The original patch where the problem is discussed is
https://lkml.kernel.org/lkml/1489616530-4025-1-git-send-email-andreas@kemnade.info

I'm not entirely sure how to split this up. Can you give some advice?

Thanks for the link. I removed these lines.

Done. Though I'm not sure whether I did it the right way.

Thanks for all the advice, I hope this will be included eventually.
