I don't understand. Why can't this driver be a loadable module on i.MX7?
Please clarify in the changelog what the bug is on i.MX7.

But it's the same driver, make it work the same way on all chips!
I think artificially limiting a new driver feature to one chip just
asked for it on another chip is not helpful.
