Hello Pali,

This compatible string looks good to me.
We will send a new patch version, which implements the discussed DT

The Marvell hw_info partition is very similar to the U-Boot environment.
The only difference is in the separator between the "key=value" pairs,
which is 0x20/space in the case of hw_info.
This is also prevents us to hard-code the parameter addresses in the
device tree, because they can move around.

The checksum is stored before the hw_info environment - this would
have to be investigated further to implement checksum verification.

Kind regards,
