KERNEL LOGS

I had this impression that cat slots will not work, because it was removed from kernel, but if my dtbo is working but its working ny compatible string match via of_ mechanism.
My objective was to strip down the i2c driver to bare minimum and make it load at boot time using device tree overlay.
I do not see my driver loaded after doing lsmod. Nor the probe print I have put in adxl34x.c probe.

Where am I wrong here? What did I miss.
I am only following this

eMMC bootloader is too old, nuke that..

Hi Robert,

Yes I have removed this uEnv.txt and used another one that is here,


Now I am able to load overlay at boot and my driver also gets loaded. 
Just one thing I only see error logs in kernel boot up.
