Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] mfd: axp20x: Add support for dts property

commit b101829a029a ("mfd: axp20x: Fix AXP806 access errors on cold boot")
was intended to fix the case where a board uses an AXP806 in slave mode,
but the boot loader leaves it in master mode for lack of AXP806 support.
But now the driver breaks on boards where the PMIC is operating in master
mode. This patch lets the driver use the new device tree property
"xpowers,master-mode" to set the correct operating mode for the board.

Fixes: 8824ee857348 ("mfd: axp20x: Add support for AXP806 PMIC")
Signed-off-by: Rask Ingemann Lambertsen <>
Changes from v1 to v2:
Changed the commit message such that Fixes: points to the commit which added
the AXP806 driver because the property should have been included from the
beginning of the AXP806 support.
