Is 3x expected to be enough to 'guarantee' as successful
initialization? Just wondered about the 10x since it suddendly changed
from 1x. What is the failure rate without retries?

Could you provide more information about the 'communication
synchronization issues'? Is the root cause understood? Maybe there is
a better way than retries.

Ok, in any case downstream drivers shouldn't impact the design of
upstream drivers. If there are incompatibilities the BT driver needs
to be hacked in the downstream tree.

If I understand correctly you describe a hypothetical situation of a
future wcn3990 variant having lower power requirements. I'd say let's
deal with this when these chips actually exist and need to be
supported by Linux. As of now it seems there is no need for current
limits in the DT.

Where does of_property_read_u32() set the value to zero when the
property does not exist?

A simple test in a probe function:

{
u32 v = 123;
of_property_read_u32(node, "no-such-property", &v);
printk("DBG: v = %d\n", v);
}

[ 7.598366] DBG: v = 123

And looking at the code, of_property_read_u32() ends up in a call to
of_property_read_variable_u32_array():

int of_property_read_variable_u32_array(const struct device_node *np,
const char *propname, u32 *out_values,
size_t sz_min, size_t sz_max)
{
size_t sz, count;
const __be32 *val = of_find_property_value_of_size(np, propname,
(sz_min * sizeof(*out_values)),
(sz_max * sizeof(*out_values)),
&sz);

if (IS_ERR(val))
return PTR_ERR(val);

...
}

i.e. 'out_values' is not modified when the property does not exit.
