You did beat me, I started a driver some time ago but failed to finish debugging it...

AFAIK there is 2 versions of the IP, the "old" one we can find on Meson6, 8/8b, GXBB, GXL & GXM (and maybe AXG ?),
and the one we find on the latest G12A, G12B & SM1.

The SEI510 and SEI610 boards we use for Yukawa android port do have the necessary HW for IR sending,
so I'll eventually be able to test.

So, as martin says you should add a "amlogic,g12a-ir-blaster" to be sure we support the older ir blaster version
correctly with the right bindings.
