Mipi/DSI driver, friendlycore, or...?

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Hi there.

The crossboard for my mipi/dsi display is almost ready, so i went on with some preliminary research on how to make it live with T4.
Unfortunately, exotic display support is a dark corner in most embedded distros, I found a track of it only for sunxi android kernels, that are unusable for Rockchip and for my goals. Moving the code looks pretty cumbersome as device trees in sunxi and friendlycore look totally different.

Does anyone have a success story with mipi/dsi displays on RK and friendlycore/ubuntu already? Google says nothing, github has not much on this topic except some (stub?) mipi/dsi code.

I have no experience with this iface yet. Please advise? Thank you.
Armbian kernel 4.4.190 (not modded, despite panel-simple.c is NOT in defconfig :? ) and lightly modified DTS from orangePi.
Added proper reset line, frequency/sync, init string, voila - the display is working.
Quite simple compared to links above.
