Hi Kosta,

Let me chime in.

Please do it another way around.
1. We need to leave the device tree bindings intact as much as
possible - specifically for Armada 7k8k changes in this area have
been causing enough problems in the past, breaking compatibility
between kernel revisions. Moving the property to board level can be
good here, but forces all other board dts files to adjust.
Unfortunately Linux is a source of truth for the arm64 device tree
bindings, but please note other OS's use those files as well - let's
minimize the impact for existing HW and drivers.

2. What I propose is to remove `marvell,xenon-phy-slow-mode` from
armada-ap80x.dtsi and add below in armada-ap806.dtsi:
&ap_sdhci0 {
marvell,xenon-phy-slow-mode;
};

This way AP807 becomes free from the unwanted slow mode setting. Also
any user of Armada 7k8k the B0 revision can add below to the board
file:

&ap_sdhci0 {
+ /delete-property/marvell,xenon-phy-slow-mode;
};

3. Contrary to the SDK version, sdhci-xenon.c is not capable of
checking the SoC revision. HS200 is disabled for all versions of AP806
there - I believe this place requires revisiting, to start relying
explicitly on the `marvell,xenon-phy-slow-mode` setting, rather than
the compatible string. I can handle this one.

4. Please move armada-8040-db.dts changes to a separate patch, please.

Thanks,
Marcin
