Dear Tomasz,

I'd like to elaborate more about the tuning_data.va.
Would you like to give us some advice about our improvement proposal inline?

Thank you very much.

After confirming the firmware part, I found that we use this field
(tuning_data.va) to notify firmware if there is no tuning data from
user.

- frameparams.tuning_data.va is 0: use the default tuning data in
				   SCP, but we still need to pass
				   frameparams.tuning_data.pa because
				   the buffer contains some working
				   buffer required.
- frameparams.tuning_data.va is not 0: the tuning data was passed from
				       the user

Since we should not pass cpu addres to SCP, could I rename tuning_data.va
as tuning_data.cookie, and write a constant value to indicate if SCP
should use its internal default setting or not here?

For example,
/* SCP uses tuning data passed from userspace*/
dip_work->frameparams.tuning_data.cookie = MTK_DIP_USER_TUNING_DATA;

/* SCP uses internal tuning data */
dip_work->frameparams.tuning_data.cookie = MTK_DIP_DEFAULT_TUNING_DATA;
