SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 1/5] ARM: memory: da8xx-ddrctl: new driver
From
Date
Hi Sekhar,

(And adding Sudeep since he becomes involved in this further
down thread and at that point says he will re-work this
proposed work around in a manner that is incorrect in a
manner that is similar to this proposed work around.)

da8xx_ddrctl_get_board_settings() tries to match based on the "compatible"
property in the root node. The "model" property in the root node has
nothing to do with the failure to match. So creating and then using
da8xx_ddrctl_get_machine_name() to potentially report model is not useful.

It should be sufficient to simply report that no compatible matched.
