Subject[PATCH v2] NFC: nxp-nci: Make firmware GPIO pin optional
From: Frieder Schrempf <>

There are other NXP NCI compatible NFC controllers such as the PN7150
that use an integrated firmware and therefore do not have a GPIO to
select firmware downloading mode. To support these kind of chips,
let's make the firmware GPIO optional.

Signed-off-by: Frieder Schrempf <>

Changes in v2:
* Remove unneeded null check for phy->gpiod_fw
