SubjectRe: [PATCH v1 2/3] ARM: dts: stm32: enable Vivante GPU support on stm32mp157c-ed1 board
From
Date
Hi Lucas,

I'm going to resend a new version on this DT. I have to move this region elsewhere.

However I didn't get your feedback about statement I did.
Would it be possible to have your feelings ?

Thanks :)
