I read that thread and also looked at his device and it is very similar
to this one. Binding should also have information about i2c or spi. It
is the same case here that you can use this hub without any bus
connected which works in default mode. Or when i2c/smbus is connected
and the hub is waiting for initialization sequence. And I expect spi
behaves very similarly but don't have this setup here.
Do we have any binding doc which is using suggested bus link?
