Yeah, I was to mentioned that.

Why wouldn't it fit? You can implement timeout_set op and cache flash
timeout value in it. Then that cached value would be passed in
strobe_set to mod_timer() in place of currently hard coded 250.

This needs to be documented in DT bindings for this driver.

And this in camera bindings.
