No it won't as register layouts and bit fields are different. Also IMP_CTRL
register doesnt exist for msm8996. I will mention that explicitly here.

Fine.

Default property value for an SOC is specified in driver and could vary from
soc to soc. Hence, from board devicetree for different SOCs we might need
to select separate widths overriding default driver values.
Alternative is to have two bool properties each for half and full-width. Did
you actually mean that?

Sure.

Thanks for review Rob. I too agree with both the viewpoints.
Doug, if it is not of much concern then can I stick with current approach?
