Thanks for this.

Tested this on ipq8074 and wcss rproc is up with this.

Tested-by: Sricharan R <>

So regarding the cleanup, as i see, this consolidates the code much better.

so about the point of avoiding duplication for soc specific functions like
qcv5_wcss_reset common between qcv5_wcss and qcv5_pil drivers as done in my
series, with a second thought that feels it might be difficult to maintain
in the longer run. Since the sequences are specific to each soc and for now
although some part of it is common, for a minor update in one soc, common
code needs to reworked every time and tested on all boards that share them.

So feels like having the duplication for hw init sequences is the cleaner way.

Apart from that for other comments on the q6v5 wcss driver, i can address them
on this final patch that you have posted and same can be included in your
next version. Please let me know how you want to go about it.
