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

Digital side looks similar enough that Milo was able to share code
between them.

Yes, obviously register map will be different.

We already been through this once. More than one of these has ramp
support, and more than one has overvoltage protection. (Plus, all of
them are LED drivers).

Surely non-ugly design can be done where the code is shared?

Thanks,
Pavel
