Problems with WIFI/wlan Support on Imx8

Hi everyone:
                    I am porting wifi module on my DEMO-board with imx8Quad chip,the board I am using is highly similar to imx8QuadXPlus. The wifi module is ublox JODY-W163 series,and I have succeeded in porting this wifi module on my board under yocto 4.14.78.1.0.0 project,but when I update yocto project to 4.14.98.2.3.0,the brcmfmac-sdio driver doesn't work as I expected.The main kernel dts changes can be seen in attached files .
when booting kernel ,the 4.14.78 log about brcmfmac-sdio driver shows below:
[ 2.854654] mmc0: SDHCI controller on 5b010000.usdhc [5b010000.usdhc] using A
[ 2.867220] sdhci-esdhc-imx 5b020000.usdhc: allocated mmc-pwrseq
[ 2.873323] sdhci-esdhc-imx 5b020000.usdhc: assigned as wifi host
[ 2.881726] mmc_pwrseq_simple_pre_power_on--> 1
[ 2.910638] mmc_pwrseq_simple_post_power_on--> 0
[ 2.964874] mmc1: queuing unknown CIS tuple 0x80 (2 bytes)
[ 2.970461] mmc0: new HS200 MMC card at address 0001
[ 4.114331] mmc1: new high speed SDIO card at address 0001
[ 4.120320] SDIO brcmf_ops_sdio_probe Enter-->
ffs.utp0[ 4.125063] SDIO brcmf_ops_sdio_probe Enter-->

whie booting kernel with yocto project 4.14.98.2.3.0,the log only shows:
[ 2.197300] mmc1: SDHCI controller on 5b020000.usdhc [5b020000.usdhc] using A

After bring-up,the wifi modules(compat.ko cfg80211.ko brcmutil.ko brcmfmac.ko) are successfully insmod,but the wlan0 interface doesn't show up

How should I make wifi module detected by SDIO driver?Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Hi igor

Thanks for reply!  I will  post my issues on cypress community. I have also tried to compile the latest brcmfmac drivers ,but failed. I do believe this issue is caused by DTS files change,or any suggestions about which porting procedure may cause this problem?
