Subject[PATCH v3 0/4] Add device tree support for on-chip SRAM
Date
These patches add support to configure on-chip SRAM via device-tree
node and to obtain the resulting genalloc pool from a phandle pointing
at the node.
This allows drivers to allocate SRAM with the genalloc API without
hard-coding the genalloc pool address.

The on-chip SRAM on i.MX53 and i.MX6q is registered via device tree and
changed to use the simple generic SRAM driver:

ocram: ocram@00900000 {
compatible = "fsl,imx-ocram", "sram";
reg = <0x00900000 0x3f000>;
};
A driver that needs to allocate SRAM buffers, like the video processing
unit on i.MX53, can retrieve the genalloc pool from a phandle in the
device tree using of_get_named_gen_pool(node, "iram", 0) from patch 5:

vpu@63ff4000 {
/* ... */
iram = <&ocram>;
};
Changes since v2, as per Shawn's suggestions:
- Moved struct device_node declaration out of #ifdef CONFIG_OF.
- Simplified of_get_named_gen_pool using of_parse_phandle and
of_address_to_resource.
- Return -EADDRNOTAVAIL if devm_request_and_ioremap fails.
- Squashed i.MX changes together.

regards
Philipp
