No, it is not needed. I also wrote to in previous messages to keep
drivers out of this. They are not related to this topic and don't use
them as arguments.

No. Bindings *MUST BE COMPLETE*, not depend on some other drivers.
Submit *COMPLETE* bindings for entire hardware. Then submit complete
DTS. I don't care about the drivers and they do not have to be complete.

This is like a tenth message and I was explaining it multiple times. Go
back to previous emails.

Please don't mention drivers anymore in this discussions. It only
confuses you.

Example of what? What is the question? I found a bug in Linux, so can I
create such bug again?

This discussion is fruitless and tiresome. You are repeating the same
issues and asking the same questions.

Best regards,
