Are you saying that the entire flip-flop-the-reset is a single firmware
operation in your case? If you look at the Mediatek driver, the
implementation of ufs_mtk_device_reset_ctrl() is a jump to firmware.

But perhaps "asserted" isn't the appropriate English word for saying
"the reset is in the resetting state"?

I just wanted to avoid the use of "high"/"lo" as if you look at the
Mediatek code they pass the expected line-level to the firmware, while
in the Qualcomm code we pass the logical state to the GPIO code which is
setup up as "active low" and thereby flip the meaning before hitting the

Wouldn't this new function just have to look like the proposed patches?
In which case for existing platforms we'd have both?

How would you implement this, or would you simply skip implementing
