Yes. It is at:

I guess I was too lazy to place the above on almost all patches in this
series. There are some past patches for atomisp that already contains
such info.

The atomisp's TODO mentions it:

- for CHT: /lib/firmware/shisp_2401a0_v21.bin


Long answer:

Basically, as far as I'm aware, the original atomisp driver is produced by
some code generator, which not only dynamically add code to the driver's
source code output, but also sets several #ifdefs and dynamically change the
firmware API depending on the Atom CPU, features and on other options.

If you take a look at the original commit which added this driver:

a49d25364dfb ("staging/atomisp: Add support for the Intel IPU v2")

It basically had some efforts from Alan to support both ISP2400 (BYT) and
ISP2401 (CHT) versions at the same code.

If you look on its TODO, it says:

"The ISP code depends on the exact FW version. The version defined in
static const char *release_version = STR(irci_stable_candrpv_0415_20150521_0458);
static const char *release_version = STR(irci_ecr-master_20150911_0724);"

So, the versions for BYT and CHT at the original patch were different, and
there are lots of #ifdefs to test between such differences.

There's another problem, through. The irci_ecr-master_20150911_0724 firmware
was never placed at linux-firmware, and got lost in time. I don't know
anyone whose has such exact version. It seems it got lost in time, no idea

The only non-android Linux driver we know is for the Intel Aero hardware,
which is Cherrytail (CHT). For such hardware, the firmware is also provided
at the Intel Aero Yocto repositories, at:

The version of this firmware is:

$ strings /lib/firmware/shisp_2401a0_v21.bin |grep irci_stable_

As we have both drivers and firmware for such version, we're actually
adjusting the upstream code to match this version for ISP2401 (CHT).

There's a side effect with this change: the code for ISP2400 and ISP2401
will be both based on the same version, which helps to reduce the
differences at the driver level - that's assuming that we can:

- find a publicly-available ISP2400
irci_stable_candrpv_0415_20150521_0458 binary;
- have some BYT hardware for testing with upstream drivers[1];
- have an Android driver for the same fix, in order to help
double-checking if the code is compatible with the firmware.

[1] On some BYT BIOS, the normal ACPI method of detecting the hardware
doesn't work, as the ISP is visible though the GPU. That's the case
of a commonly found hardware (Asus T100 with the production BIOS).
