I am against v1/v2 versions. The documentation in Samsung was always
poor in that matter. There were mistakes or confusions so it wasn't
always obvious which IP-block version comes with which SoC. Not
mentioning that several contributors do not have access to Samsung
datasheets and they submit code based on GPL compliance packages, so
they won't know which version they have for given SoC.

OTOH there is no single benefit of using USI v1/v2, except "liking".

Best regards,
Krzysztof
