Hi!

This patch series for supporting RZ/G2[MN] rev4 board to cip-4.19.y
kernel.
  arch/arm64/boot/dts/renesas/r8a774a1.dtsi | 11 -----------
  1 file changed, 11 deletions(-)
I'm pretty sure this is not the real diffstat.

Let me go through the changes. One concern: you are renaming dts
files. New names make a lot of sense, but that will likely break the
users, including our test infrastructure, no?
Technically yes, it would cause problems. However this seems to be the way of doing things upstream.
I guess upstream is a bit different though as users would expect such things when upgrading Kernel versions.
For SLTS perhaps users wouldn't expect to see such changes? It may be easier to keep things in sync with upstream though.

FYI the "rev4" dts does actually boot on "rev2" boards. It's just that some functionality like WiFi/BT and audio won't work.
(and the rev2 dts will boot on rev4 boards)

lab-cip-renesas uses rev4 boards, so from a CIP testing point of view there will be no issues.

Kind regards, Chris
