SubjectRe: [PATCH] media: i2c: OV5647: gate clock lane before stream on
From
Date
Hi all,

I'm new here, I got to be Maintainer of this driver by the old Maintainer
recommendation. Still getting the hang of it :)

For what I can see I agree that a few register name setting could be done.

This is my interpretation as well.

I think by spec it shouldn't got to stopstate in continuous clock.

As far as I understand, bit[5] set to 1 will force clock lane to be gated (in
other words it will be forced to be in LP-11 if there are no packets to
transmit). But also LP-11 must not be achieved with the BIT(5) cleared (free
running mode)?

Sorry if I misunderstood something.

Luis
