The U-boot in Freescale i.MX6 default release doesn't support MIPI display, while the kernel supports.

This patch enables MIPI DSI and MIPI panel(hx8369) in U-boot. After applying for this patch, the image shows 'FOR MIPI TEST' on the panel when booting u-boot on i.MX6DQ/DL SabreSD board.

This patch is applied based on commit cbb8de5fa490d3b5da8f117d1dcb84e8e9f3515d.

Please refer to the patch's commit for more details.

 

Known limitations for the patch:

-- This patch doesn't support the smooth transition between uboot and kernel

-- mipi_dsi_irq_handler must be disabled in kernel: drivers/video/mxc/mipi_dsi.c when using this patch to boot into kernel.
