   series following:

Compared to the following iteration it seems RDACM21 is finally fixed \o/

I'll sum-up the issue here from the last email exchange:
Basically, as patch "media: i2c: rdacm21: Fix OV10640 powerdown" of
this series describes, the OV10640 power-up was broken before you
spotted the usage of the wrong gpio pad and it was working because of
an internal pull-up on the SPWDN line, which was erroneously left
floating. Once that was fixed, the OV10640 was always identified
correctly, leaving us with this puzzling "ov490 boot timeout error"
that manifested with more or less the same frequency of the ov10640
identification issue.

In the current implementation we power up the OV490 and wait for its
firmware to boot -before- powering up the ov10640 sensor. Most
probably (or looking at the results I get noaw, most certainly) the
OV490 firmware checks for the sensor to be available and probably
tries to program it. So we're back to the issue we originally had when
the sensor was powered because of the pull up resistor, failing to
boot in case the sensor didn't startup correctly which happened in the
20% of the cases.

If I do power up the OV10640 -before- the OV490 all the firmware boot
errors are now gone. I need to tune a bit the timeouts as after the
OV490 boot the OV10640 requires some time before being accessible.
Once I nail down the right timeouts I'll send v3. So far I got 0
errors on 50 boot attempts, finally \o/

The rest of the series is almost identical a few grammar fixes apart.
