IMX8MMini device tree overlay

Hi, 

I use Imx8MMini processor with this kernel: GitHub - varigit/linux-imx: i.MX Linux Kernel 

I want to load a driver for the max14830 chip, which is supported here: max310x.c

I compiled this file (now I have it as a .ko file) and I'm trying to load it via device tree overlay.

Unfortunately, I cannot find anywhere to put the .dtbo file. 

On RPi, this would be under /boot/overlay, but this folder is not available. Also, there is no dtoverlay command.

I noticed the overlay should be enabled in the kernel (here)

How can I load the module? 

Thanks.

Hi Jonathan

unfortunately nxp does not support device tree overlay in its bsps and

as this is general linux question it may be posted on kernel mail list
