Thanks for your efforts.I have no issue with your series (apart from
the GPIO and SATA mistake), but at the same time I believe the GPIO
hardware itself is backwards compatible between various generations.

In the nitpick department I would like to point out that the level of
hardware difference between say R-Car Gen1 GPIO and R-Car Gen2 GPIO is
similar to say good old uarts like 8250 and 16450 hardware. Basically
a couple of registers were added to the hardware in a
backwards-compatible way if I recall correctly.

So if we are going to use "compatible" to point out if hardware is
compatible or not then I would do this instead:

--- a/arch/arm64/boot/dts/renesas/r8a7796.dtsi
+++ b/arch/arm64/boot/dts/renesas/r8a7796.dtsi

                        #gpio-cells = <2>;

At the same time I'm not sure if I care _that_ much. =)
