Subject: Re: Suggestions needed for resolving DT issues between kernel 3.10
 and 4.4


Just as an update (and for future reference for anyone having similar issue):

I got this all this sorted-out. Had to change some dt-binding for
device and it was mostly drivers related changes for hardware
components. Mostly nothing to do with DT.
