SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] Support LVDS output on Allwinner A20
Maxime, thanks for your comments. I'll update the patch, but meanwhile,
I have some remarks/questions, see below.

I actually had two reference implementations at my hand. One was u-boot
and another - an old (abandoned) branch of Priit Laes [1] (I took the
split-up of u-boot SUNXI_LCDC_LVDS_ANA0 constant from there).

This is an attempt to simplify the sequence, since I noticed that the
same bit was being set to the same register twice [2] and removing that
duplication didn't produce any observable regression. Priit
implementation didn't have that bit set in the end of the sequence
either, so I omitted it. That said, I agree that it could've been a bit
naive on my side, and I can get it back to match u-boot version, if you
feel that might be important.

For the reference the U-Boot code is here: [3]

[2] setbits_le32(&lcdc->lvds_ana0, SUNXI_LCDC_LVDS_ANA0_UPDATE);

If by "proper" you mean "split them up to individual bits", I would
agree, but I can't find any actual hardware reference documentation that
would mention the meaning of these registers.

In both places (u-boot and Priit) these constants are defined the same way.

I took the liberty to rename ANA1_INIT1 to ANA1_INIT and ANA1_INIT2 to
ANA1_UPDATE to match Priit naming rather than u-boot, as I felt it was
more descriptive. I have no strong opinion here though.

Hm, I agree. I think it would be reasonable to include LVDS0/1 pins and
sample (but disabled) lvds panel, connected to tcon to
arch/arm/boot/dts/sun7i-a20.dtsi. Does that make sense to you? Would you
expect dts changes in the same patch or separate?

P.S. This is my first patch to the linux kernel, please forgive me my
