Thank you for the patch.

The documentation states that
"The user should wait 200ms for the address to be decided, after the power
supplies are high, before attempting to communicate with the ADV7511W using
The hardware user's guide further states that
"When initially powered up, there is a 200ms period before the device is ready
to be addressed."
Not only the delay you add comes after lots of I2C communication, but the
driver doesn't handle regulators, and thus doesn't power down the device at
the hardware level. The initial power up should thus be long gone when this
code is reached.
Could it be that, on the HiKey board, the power supply is controlled through
another mean that doesn't comply with the 200ms rule ?
