Hi Andrzej,
sorry for the mess :(

In cases like our Eagle board, where VCC is directly connected to the
powering rail and not through a controllable regulator, I feel like
making this mandatory requires more effort (not much, I agree, just a
"fixed-regulator" more) with no additional benefits.

But I understand your point, and I'm open to whatever fits better with
the already existing DRM bridges bindings

I didn't notice the typo in first review, and I thought you were referring to
the initial '/' which I found weird to be part of the gpio name... Then I now
realized I badly typed in "pwnd" in place of "pwdn", which is not even correct
because it has to be "pdwn"... Sorry about this mess, I will fix in v4

Seems like this is 'wrong' as well.. The chip manual says the pin is
named "pdwn" here too..

It's not much the actual physical active level that bugs me, but the fact
that the GPIO name defines if it has to be set to "active" or
"inactive" logical state in enable/disable routines that I don't
like..

Next time it will be "pndw".. Is there a prize if I do insert all
permutations of the same name in a single bindings document? :)

Will fix this shortly.

Thanks
