I've received feedback, and while it wasn't clear what the not really means, Renesas recommends following the documented startup sequence (I'm still not sure it's really needed, but that's a different story). I'll thus rebase this patch and repost it, and take it in my tree if you're fine with the result. -- Regards, Laurent Pinchart
