The brcm,sd-head-align, brcm,sd_head_align and brcm,sd_sgentry_align are
not used by the driver and not present in dtschema:

  arch/arm/boot/dts/am5729-beagleboneai.dt.yaml: wifi@1:
    'brcm,sd-head-align', 'brcm,sd_head_align', 'brcm,sd_sgentry_align' do not match any of the regexes: 'pinctrl-[0-9]+'

NAK, for what it is worth..

This is a plain old shitty situation, that everyone that mistakenly
chooses a BRCM based chipset in a design faces, then learns to NEVER
touch that chipset again..

These nodes have been posted before for mainline inclusion but always
get killed off:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/18/356

The TI AM57xx SDIO needs these flags for the brcmfmac driver to actually work.

I don't see the brcmfmac developers actually fixing it, as "out of
tree" work for brcmfmac is 100+ patches long:

Thanks for explanation. I understand these are actually used by
out-of-tree driver? That's a valid reason to add them to the binding then...

Requires login - I am not able to get the sources.

Best regards,

Sorry Krzysztof,

I forgot that a login is required, here is a quick mirror (with a
screenshot of the page.)

https://rcn-ee.net/workshops/cypress-fmac/

Screenshot: https://rcn-ee.net/workshops/cypress-fmac/brcm.png

There patch with that binding:

Thank You!
