Yeah, it's always a balance. I guess the question is: why do we think
driver changes are worse than dts changes? The value still needs to
be somewhere and having it in the driver isn't a terrible place.

Almost certainly the compatible strings should have SoC names in them.
Yes it means a binding update every time a new SoC comes up but that
is just how device tree works. Presumably there's enough chatter on
this that Rob H has totally tuned it out at this point in time, but
there are many other instances of this.

NOTE: just because we have the SoC name in the compatible string
_doesn't_ mean that the driver has to change. You already said that
the IP version can be detected earlier in this thread, right? You
said:

I found out that there is a version register at offset of 0x6000 which
can give MAJOR, MINOR and STEP numbers.

So how about this:

a) Compatible contains "SoC" version and the generic "qcom,qfrom", so:

compatible = "qcom,sdm845-qfprom", "qcom,qfrom"

b) Bindings will need to be updated for every new SoC, but that's
normal and should be a trivial patch to just add a new SoC to the
list.

c) If the driver can be made to make its decisions about frequencies /
timings completely by MAJOR/MINOR/STEP numbers then it can use those
in its decision and it will never need to use the SoC-specific
compatible string. The SoC-specific compatible string will only be
present as a fallback "oops we have to workaround a bug that we didn't
know about".


> Rob can help review once we have v2 bindings out!

Sounds good. If you're still not convinced by my arguments we can see
if we can get Rob to clarify once we have a v2. :-)
