Personally, I'd like to merge tiny/mi0283qt.c, tiny/ili9341.c(already
done) into this driver later
(keep original author, copyright, dts compatible string).
then remove these two drivers under tiny, but it's up to Sam and
Laurent agreement.

For long term, just like Peter suggested, let all panel based on
ili9xxx with single-dbi or dbi & dpi interface to be supported by
single ilitek-ili9xxx.c, something like panel/panel-simple.c
(panel/panel-ilitek-ili9322c, tiny/ili9225.c, tiny/ili9486.c,
tiny/mi0283qt.c, etc).
it's also needs maintainers permission.

Yes, it will make users confused if there are three different drivers
for the same chip.
I'll continue to work on this driver.

Thanks again for point this out.

Best Regards
