Subject: [PATCH] arm64: dts: hikey: Give wifi some time after power-on

From: Jan Kiszka <>

Somewhere along recent changes to power control of the wl1835, power-on
became very unreliable on the hikey, failing like this:

wl1271_sdio: probe of mmc2:0001:1 failed with error -16
wl1271_sdio: probe of mmc2:0001:2 failed with error -16

After playing with some dt parameters and comparing to other users of
this chip, it turned out we need some power-on delay to make things
stable again. In contrast to those other users which define 200 ms, the
hikey is already very happy with 1 ms.

Signed-off-by: Jan Kiszka <>

Tested with 4.19 and linus/master.
