Thanks for catching the misspelling.

Yes. I could add the sysfs interfaces for query of the retimer mode.

Yes. I could just reference the file in Documentation/ABI

Yes, I'll change it.

I can make it bool.

I tried to break the line by
dev_err(dev, "XXX"
"XXX", val);

But checkpatch says "WARNING: quoted string split across lines".

I see checkpatch allows long lines for logging functions, so could we
keep it unchanged?

I didn't send the MAX 10 patchset in fpga domain, It goes to the SPI &
MFD maintainers, please see:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/8/19/172

The regmap-spi-avmm has been applied for linux-next. The MAX 10 base
driver is under review.

Thanks,
