1) Please CC linux-media as well, I had almost missed this series.

2) Is this a SoC limitation or a board limitation?

3) Is the bit-banging support sunxi specific? Or is it still using some
   DW CEC functionality? It appears to be sunxi specific.

4) I had an old patch series:

Rob Herring disagreed with that, but the discussion fizzled out at the end.
I still think doing this in the device tree is the right approach since this
is very much hardware related.

If the DW CEC implementation doesn't work for some reason (CEC pins not hooked up,
or for other reasons non-functional), then it should be disabled in the device
tree. So then adding a new SUN8I option to enable bitbanging CEC support seems
