Subject: Re: [PATCH] usb: xhci-pci: Raspberry Pi FW loader for VIA VL805

Hi Greg, thanks for having a look at this.

I know, not that happy about it either, but I had to start with something :)

Yes, although...

...you're right here, on non-rpi systems this will just return without errors.
On top of that, most VL805 users don't use device-tree, so it'll be fast.

I think moving it into firmware/raspberrypi.c should be acceptable. That said
I'd still be on the loose regarding the include file, and the platform specific
function call in xhci_pci_probe(). Any suggestions?
Note that it's important to us to be able to defer the probe as the firmware
inteface bringup might race with xHC's

Noted, I'll update that.
