As per the current implementation, after FSC (Full Scale Current)
and brightness update the sync bits are transitioned from 1 to 0.
But, the FSC and brightness sync takes place during a 0 to 1
transition of the sync bits. So the hardware team recommends a
clear-then-set approach in order to guarantee such a transition
regardless of the previous register state.

This still seems to incorrectly describe the current behaviour.

Surely in most cases (i.e. every time except the first) the value of the
sync bit is 0 when the function is called and we get both a 0 to 1
and then a 1 to 0 transition.

That is why I recommended set-then-clear terminology to describe the
current behaviour. It is concise and correct.

Okay. Actually I have mentioned the "clear-and-set" in explaining the 
fix.
Let me modify the same terminology in explaining the problem case also.

Yes please.

In my original review I took time to explain why patch descriptions
require care and attention and, also, why expressing the original behaviour
as 1 to 0 was inadequate. Based on the previous feedback (and reply) I
was rather surprised that the problem was only half corrected in the
next revision.


Daniel.
