Ok, good to hear you're pushing it to mainline. However, you should
mentally prepare for it being a black brick =(.

Tony said he's not adding new board files, only DT from now on. The
display subsystem driver and the panel drivers do not work with DT yet,
and it will still take some time for that to realize.

Thus adding this driver would help nothing, as it couldn't be used. And
after the DSS and the panel drivers are made to work with DT (which is a
big job, needing large rewrites of the drivers), there's a rework that
has to be done with this driver to make it compatible with the new DSS

So, I'm still inclined to say that we shouldn't merge this.
