Thanks for all the feedback. Just a quick note to let you know that
I'm working on V2 patchset that will fix all coding-style and dts/binding
issues. The new patchset will be significantly smaller and I managed
to remove everything that is not strictly needed in order to be able to
boot an rpi5 from sd card.
