The original author was copied on the initial commit. I literally
generated the patch from NXP's branch, added my notes, and pushed
them to the mailing lists after testing them on the the Linux master
branch. I am a bit disappointed that NXP's author hasn't responded
to any of the comments or feedback. NXP knows their hardware and
better understands the details as to what is happening and why. In
any case, I'll try to scale the patch series back to just enough to
get it working on the i.MX8M Mini. I'll expand a bit on the commit
message based on what I've learned about the various in-implemented
quirks and send a V2 series.
