I totally agree and I think I understand that correctly.

I agree the reset should be done as a 0 -> 1 -> 0 sequence and that should
just work. The problem is it is implemented vice versa and so it works only
if you have GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH in DT for a signal that is actually active low.

And what it actually does is that it holds the controller in reset since
the GPIO is successfully acquired (because of GPIOD_OUT_LOW here [1]) and
later on it only releases the reset.

As a DT author I would like to somehow clearly state that the OLED display
uses active low reset in my DT.

My first attempt to fix this was to change the reset sequence [2].
It was applied and then reverted as it is not backward compatible with
deployed DTB files [3].
