Can you be more specific about what kernel driver(s) you are missing? Is
latest 5.9 supporting this? Then please provide a reference (driver
name, DT bindings or even commit list).

Or are you referring to a feature of the vendor tree (linux-imx)? Then
please talk to NXP and ask about the status of this, if there is an
upstream equivalent by now or if this has been abandoned by them.

CIP has a strict upstream-first policy, so we can't take any downstream
patches. However, if a feature is upstream and only missed the latest
CIP kernel, you can propose backported patches for integration into that
kernel. Preconditions:

- they are not invasive to other drivers or the kernel as a whole

- you are a CIP member, or the CIP member community supports the
backport (as it may increase our workload)

Thanks and Regards,
Rajashree Sankar
