[PATCH 1/6] media: dt-bindings: Document 'location' property
From: Jacopo Mondi
Date: Fri Aug 16 2019 - 10:17:09 EST
Add the 'location' device property, used to specify the camera device
mounting position. The property is particularly meaningful for mobile
devices with a well defined usage orientation.
