SLIMbus (Serial Low Power Interchip Media Bus) is a specification
developed by MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) alliance.

Hi Kenneth and Sagar,

On a very high level, I think the driver is in the right place here,
and it's appropriate to have a new bus type along with similar
existing bus_types like i2c. It's also good to see that you have
a good documentation file for this bus.

My main issue with the driver is the device registration method
that now looks a bit aged. More about this below.


Thank you for taking the time to review the driver. I appreciate your comments and will roll them in to the next revision of the driver. I'll also try to follow up with any questions and concerns that you raised.
