Sorry, but can we rewind a bit: Why can't you just register the orientation switch from your mux driver and be done with it? You should then be able to use OF graph, and no special bindings should be needed, no? If you want to reuse a mux-controller driver, then you do need to modify it (but only a little), and what ever mux-controller specific bindings there are, you will not use those when the mux supplies the orientation switching function, instead you'll use the OF graph for that. But surely that is not a problem? The mux-controller framework expects the "consumers" of the muxes to understand the final function that the mux is used for. The Type-C "mux" framework (I should not even talk about muxes with those) works the other way around. The driver for the component that supplies the orientation switch function must understand that it is handling that function, and there is a good reason for doing it that way with the USB Type-C switches. The orientation switch for example quite simply is _not_ always a mux. In fact, it's seems to be rarely a mux these days. With USB4 for example the orientation is handled almost always by the first on-board retimer. There are actually also some technical reasons why Hans failed to get the mux-controller thing to work, which is the original reason why we introduced the dedicated framework for the Type-C "muxes" (I really should stop talking about muxes), but I don't remember what was the reason. In any case, to summarise: the orientation switch is a function. A mux is a device that can supply that function, and if it does, then the driver for it really needs to register the dedicated orientation switch. thanks, -- heikki _______________________________________________ linux-arm-kernel mailing list email@example.com http://lists.infradead.org/mailman/listinfo/linux-arm-kernel
