Thanks! I spotted that after I set it yesterday
It's gone in my latest patch.

It's just a style change so naming convention matches the content I get
from the H/W engineers -- I was going to change this globally when I made
the next set of changes, but I didn't add it here because I would have to
change the rest of the code and I just wanted to concentrate on the chip
variant detection with this patch.

And again :(
I'm sorry you had to review that part.

Yep, it is only a small change -- but the implication of keeping support for the
previous silicon variant is fairly large at this point.

The previous silicon was only sent out in sample form to selected customers
and will no longer be available. I have been informed that the new silicon
has been sent out, and everybody should have received the new variant by
now.

The new variant is the only one going into production and the previous silicon
variant will no longer be available. Also, the production silicon of DA9063
makes an alteration to the registers which makes the two register maps
incompatible.

These were known changes.

So, for those two reasons. I would prefer to remove support for the old variant
from the kernel.

Yep, I will .. same reason as above.

Thanks for your comments.
