Hi Sam,
thanks for your comments!

I'm fine with converting this (i also forgot to squash a missing unit
name and a typo fix in the bindings, will add this for v2).

mxsfb can drive LCD displays directly and - on newer SoCs like the i.MX8
- also feed the nwl dsi host controller. So having that as a bridge is
hopefully the right thing to do.

In order for that to work on the hardware i tested on, we'd need:

- at least the first patch from
https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/series/62822/ for bridge support
- https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/series/64300/ to get the bus flags
- https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/series/64292/ to be able to use
panel_bridge in this driver

I only had a reference to the first point above in the cover letter.
I'll add the other ones for v2 now that these are sent out. I'll also
address your comments in other parts of this series.

Cheers and thanks for having look!
