SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 1/6] dt-bindings: ti-lmu: Remove LM3697

I'd really like to see better explanation here.

We have existing binding, for lm3697 and similar devices. With this
series, different binding is introduced, without documented reason.

That's bad.

Now, maybe you are right and the hardware should be handled by
drivers/leds, not drivers/mfd. But we should have solution for all the
similar chips, and that still does not mean we have to modify the
binding. (But maybe we want to move it to different
directory). Bindings are supposed to describe hardware, not mirror
structure of our drivers.

Unless there's something fatally wrong with the binding... but in such
case we'd like to know what is wrong.

[And yes, I recognize current situation is ... not ideal and I'm
willing to help. But I'm not sure this is step in right direction.]

Thanks,
Pavel
