i recently found a way to compile dtbo via kernel compile-tools

https://github.com/frank-w/BPI-R2-4.14/commit/8a0d96d0932e71dd226b4cca641dcc097b23247c

is this the right way?

imho adding the mmc-node in base dts is better than getting device to boot only
with at least one overlay.

maybe drop it for now till we can test it?

as far as i see it defines array mt8192_pull_type with multiple MTK_PULL_PU_PD_TYPE / MTK_PULL_PUPD_R1R0_TYPE / MTK_PULL_PU_PD_RSEL_TYPE, but have not yet found out how it is working (array only put into mt8192_data.pull_type, no usage of this memeber, see no reference in mt8192.dtsi).

maybe with the

bias-pull-up = <MTK_PULL_SET_RSEL_011>;

in arch/arm64/boot/dts/mediatek/mt8192-asurada.dtsi is pointing to this array?

but this file needs to be inside the kernels tree to get the dts compiled.
As this is basicly a blob (and firmware is stored outside) this is tricky.

maybe i should drop it for now to get basic support of the board without wifi till this is solved?

or adding wifi without the eeprom-data property and add firmware (file or directly like now) in my
own repo, but this needs to be done in every sourcebase as mainline is then non-functional.
