Subject[PATCH v2] media: docs-rst: Clarify duration of LP-11 mode
From: Steve Longerbeam <>

Add a sentence that makes it more clear when the CSI-2 transmitter
must, if possible, exit LP-11 mode. That is, maintain LP-11 mode
until stream on, at which point the transmitter activates the clock
lane and transition to HS mode.

Signed-off-by: Steve Longerbeam <>
Changes in v2:
- change wording "Only until stream on ..." to "Only at stream on ..."

transmitter to *LP-11 mode* whenever the transmitter is powered on but
