+Sitronix ST7586 display panel
+Required properties:
+- compatible:  "lego,ev3-lcd".
+The node for this driver must be a child node of a SPI controller, hence
+all mandatory properties described in ../spi/spi-bus.txt must be
specified. +
+Optional properties:
+- dc-gpios:    D/C pin. The presence/absence of this GPIO determines
+               the panel interface operation mode (IF[3:1] pins):
+               - present: IF=011 4-wire 8-bit data serial interface
+               - absent:  IF=010 3-wire 9-bit data serial interface

How does this work ? Do you have a single GPIO on your system connected to
IF[1], with IF[3:2] hardwired to 01 ?

LEGO has not made the internals of the display publicly available, so I
cannot say for sure. But I assume that IF[3:1] is hardwired to 011. This
causes pin D1 to assigned to the signal A0, which is what we are calling
the dc gpio here.

If IF[3:1] were hardwired to 010, then pin D1 would be not not used and
there would be no A0 signal.

So, basically, we can infer the state of IF[3:1] by the fact that we
have a dc pin or not.

OK, now I understand what you mean. Maybe you should phrase it a bit
differently to make it clearer ? How about

dc-gpios: Specified or the GPIO connected to the panel's D/C pin (also called
A0). The property is required when the panel operates in 4-wire mode (IF[3:1]
= 011) and prohibited when the panel operates in 3-wire mode (IF[3:1] = 010).

Yes, this is more clear. Thank you for the suggestion.

By the way, if the signal is named A0, why don't you call the property a0-
gpios ?

I consider "dc-gpios" to be a generic name since it is used by many different panels. But I would be OK with calling it "a0-gpios" as well. It will just require more explanation that this is the A0 *signal* and not the A0 *pin*. The actual pin used is labeled *D1* on the controller.

On the other hand, it is labeled as A0 on LEGO's schematic, so perhaps a0 is better.

+- reset-gpios: Reset pin
+- power-supply:        A regulator node for the supply voltage.
+- backlight:   phandle of the backlight device attached to the panel
+- rotation:    panel rotation in degrees counter clockwise

Please use the OF graph DT bindings (a.k.a. ports) to describe the
connection between the panel and its source.

I am afraid that I do not understand this request. What would the source
of the panel be? There is nothing like a SoC LCD controller that is
driving this panel.

My bad, I should have read the panel datasheet before replying :-S Please
ignore this comment.
