Ok, that is a good reason to convince me.

Yes, I know some of these...

Since your JZ4780 code needs to update .max_register anyway it's a good moment to add this patch, and the DTSI files can be fixed later (by me or whoever is up to the task).

Well, it would already be part of my Variant #2 (untested). So I could simply split it up further and you can test the pure dtsi changes and apply them later or modify if that makes problems. Saves you a little work. BTW: the jz4740 seems to have even less registers (last register seems to be LCDCMD1 @ 0x1305005C).

> Fixing the DTS is not a problem in any way, btw. We just need to ensure that the drivers still work with old DTB files, which will be the case here.

Yes, that is right since the new values are smaller than the originals.

Ok, then let's do it that way.

BR and thanks,
