Hi Lukas,

I have to admit, don't like this patch too much.

While it looks technically correct (I haven't tested it yet) it, it
mixes fip_state and fip_mode even more, which I think is bad for the
readability of the code flow.

Maybe you could add a conversion function for it?

Something like (untested):
static inline enum fip_mode fip_state_to_mode(enum fip_state state)
{
switch (state) {
case FIP_ST_AUTO:
return FIP_MODE_AUTO;
case FIP_ST_NON_FIP:
return FIP_MODE_NON_FIP;
case FIP_ST_ENABLED:
return FIP_MODE_FABRIC;
case FIP_ST_VMMP_START:
return FIP_MODE_VN2VN;
default:
WARN(1, "Invalid FIP state");
}

return FIP_ST_AUTO;
}

Byte,
Johannes
