    Subject[PATCH/RFC 0/6] staging: board: armadillo800eva: Board staging for sh_mobile_lcdc_fb
    	Hi all,

    This RFC patch series adds board staging support for r8a7740/armadillo.
    For now this supports only the frame buffer device for the on-board LCD.
    The goal is to complete the move to ARM multiplatform kernels for all
    shmobile platforms, and drop the existing board files

    The board staging area was introduced last year to allow continuous
    upstream in-tree development and integration of platform devices. It
    helps developers integrate devices as platform devices for device
    drivers that only provide platform device bindings. This in turn allows
    for incremental development of both hardware feature support and DT
    binding work in parallel.

    This series consists of 4 parts:
    - Patch 1 re-enables compilation of the board staging area, which was
    disabled after a compile breakage, but has been fixed in the mean
    - Path 2 moves initialization of staging board code to an earlier
    moment, as currently it happens after unused PM domains are powered
    - Patches 3 and 4 (hopefully) fix the existing kzm9d board staging
    code, which was presumably broken by commit 9a1091ef0017c40a
    ("irqchip: gic: Support hierarchy irq domain."),
    - Patches 5 and 6 add support for registering platform devices with
    complex dependencies (clocks, pinctrl, gpios, PM domains), and add
    armadillo board staging code for enabling a frame buffer on the
    on-board LCD.

    - Are there other devices from board-armadillo.c that work fine in
    armadillo-legacy, and that we want to add?
    I think this is the list of devices lacking DT support and/or
    missing in DTS:
    - renesas_usbhs (does this work? the platform device is
    instantiated conditionally, but the condition (gpio state) is
    never true?)
    - sh-mobile-hdmi/sh_mobile_lcdc_fb.1 (this seems to be broken in
    - sdhi1 (we do have sdhi0)
    - mmcif
    - soc-camera-pdrv/sh_mobile_ceu
    - ipmmu
    - sh-dma-engine (this will probably never get DT support)

    - What about support for other boards (kzm9g, bockw, marzen)?

    This was tested on r8a7740/armadillo.
    This was not tested on emev2/kzm9d, due to lack of hardware.

    Thanks for your comments!
