Hello Xin Ji,

Thank you for the patch.

I assume you meant MIPI DSI ? MIPI has released more standards than DSI,
so it doesn't hurt to specify this explicitly.

According to
https://www.analogix.com/en/system/files/AA-002291-PB-6-ANX7625_ProductBrief_0.pdf,
the ANX7625 supports for MIPI DSI and DPI on the input side.
Furthermore, it seems to output DisplayPort on USB Type-C. Should this
be documented ?

How about mentioning which pin of the ANX7625 each GPIO refers to ? For
the low-power, pon and reset GPIOs I assume they directly control the
chip. We have standard names for some GPIOs, such as reset or enable. Is
there one of the low-power and pon GPIOs that would qualify as an enable
signal ?

What is the HPD GPIO for ? Does the chip output and HPD signal ?

s/pannel/panel/

Are those two properties mutually exclusive ? If so you should combine
them in a single required property with two values. My feeling is that
they should be dropped though, please see below.

This does not belong to DT, the virtual channel used by the DSI source
should be queried at runtime by communicating between drivers.

Please use the standard data-lanes property as defined in
video-interface.txt. It should be specified in the DSI endpoints.

You need at least 3 ports:

- a DPI input port
- a DSI input port
- an output port

The dsi-supported property should be dropped, detecting the type of
input should be done based on which of the DPI or DSI input port is
connected.

Assuming the ANX7625 can also output DisplayPort directly without going
through USB Type-C (I can't verify that without the datasheet), I think
you should use two output ports, one for USB Type-C and one for
DisplayPort. The extcon-supported and internal-pannel-supported
properties should be removed, and deduced from the connect output port.

You mention the port at 0 node as being required, but it's missing from the
example.
