In case of using CPU interface panel, the relevant registers should be set.
So this patch adds relevant dt bindings.

Shouldn't the interface parameters be considered as a property of the slave 
device instead ? The bus master side is programmable, and different slaves 
would have different timing requirements. I think it would make more sense to 
specify the timings on the slave (panel) side and query them dynamically at 
runtime. Depending on the slave the timings could be hardcoded in the driver 
(as they're usually an intrinsic property of the slave) or partially or fully 
specified in the slave DT node.

Oops... I have to change "samsung,sysreg-phandle" to "samsung,sysreg".

Yes, you're right. These properties are related to panel in a sense.

But my intention is to use these properties to fimd node in the board
specific dts file, because it decides the interface with panel and
these are required by fimd only.

If dynamic query is more logical approach, I should find some ways
with considering probing order.

Thank you.
Best regards YJ

I agree, it's a bit of a gray area. The properties describe the connection 
between the display controller output and the panel. As such they're shared 
between the two components, so deciding on which node to include them in is a 
bit difficult. In this specific case, as the panel dictates the interface 
timings and the display controller is then programmed to comply with those 
timings, I would be tempted to consider timing information as panel 
properties. This obviously complicates driver implementation, as we would need 
to communicate timing information from panel drivers to display controller 
drivers.

I won't push too much for storing interface timing information in the panel DT 
node, but I'm a bit worried that storing it in the display controller DT node 
might cause issues at some point. As DT is an ABI, we need to carefully 
consider the potential issues.

 The device node can contain 'port' child nodes according to the bindings defined
 in [2]. The following are properties specific to those nodes:
