I think it was Laurent who brought up on IRC that using a submode is probably
not a correct way to distinguish between Rx and Tx modes.

Thinking about it again, it feels like selecting the direction at run-time
would only be relevant if there's D-PHY hardware than can do both Tx and Rx
*and* that can be muxed to either a MIPI DSI and a CSI-2 controller at
run-time.

For the Allwinner case, the D-PHY is the same hardware for both but there will
be one instance attached to each controller, not a single shared instance.
It feels rather unlikely that a device with both MIPI DSI and CSI-2 would only
have one PHY for the two as this wouldn't allow concurrent use of the two
controllers. Even in a case where there'd be n controllers and m < n
bi-directional PHYs, it feels safe to assume that a static attribution would
be sufficient.
 
As a result it feels more relevant to have this distinction in device-tree
rather than via the PHY API.

What do you think?
Any suggestion on how this should be represented in device-tree?

Cheers,

Paul
