Is v2 used on a newer generation of kona SoCs? On i.MX these variants
are usually named after the first SoC that came with the new variant. Is
this sensible here, too?

Best regards

It doesn't make as much sense here as different revs of the IP block are 
picked up based on various decisions.

A new SoC could decide to use an old version.

IMHO this is no reason to not use the name of the oldest SoC with this
variant. I don't know how the SoC names are in the broadcom family, but
if they were (in order of age, oldest first):

	ant
	bear
	crocodile

and ant and crocodile use the same IP block we would have

a) with v1, v2:

	ant:
		compatible = "brcm,kona-pwm-v1";
	bear:
		compatible = "brcm,kona-pwm-v2";
	crocodile:
		compatible = "brcm,kona-pwm-v1";

; and 

b) with the SoC naming:

	ant:
		compatible = "brcm,kona-ant-pwm";
	bear:
		compatible = "brcm,kona-bear-pwm";
	crocodile:
		compatible = "brcm,kona-crocodile-pwm", "brcm,kona-ant-pwm";

(If you want, drop "brcm,kona-crocodile-pwm", but keeping it is more
defensive.) 

I like b) (with "...-crocodile-...") better than a). crocodile using
"...-ant-..." is not more ugly than crocodile using "...-v1". This is
also a tad more robust because if broadcom releases kona-dolphin and
someone finds a minor difference between the IPs used on ant and
crocodile it depends on the order of these events who gets v3, while
with the SoC naming the result is clear.

(OK, and given that "brcm,kona-pwm" is already fixed, both approaches
need slight adaption, but I guess you still get what I meant.)

Best regards
Uwe

Thanks for your thoughts and explanation.

It is unfortunate devicetree has no proper guidelines or documentation on

binding naming.  In the interest of getting this upstream we can name it

"brcm, omega-pwm".  We can drop kona from the binding name as that 
architecture

is really no more - only IP derived from it is - hence the name kona-v2 
previously.
