Subject[RFC PATCH v2 1/4] dt-bindings: misc: Add bindings for misc. BMC control fields
Date
Baseboard Management Controllers (BMCs) are embedded SoCs that exist to
provide remote management of (primarily) server platforms. BMCs are
often tightly coupled to the platform in terms of behaviour and provide
many hardware features integral to booting and running the host system.

Some of these hardware features are simple, for example scratch
registers provided by the BMC that are exposed to both the host and the
BMC. In other cases there's a single bit switch to enable or disable
some of the provided functionality.

The documentation defines bindings for fields in registers that do not
integrate well into other driver models yet must be described to allow
the BMC kernel to assume control of these features.

+BMC Miscellaneous Control Interfaces
+====================================
+
+Baseboard Management Controllers (BMCs) often have an array of hardware
+features that need to be described but are awkward to sensibly expose.
+
+This bindings document provides a generic mechanism for describing such
+features, covering read-only (RO), read-modify-write (RMW) and
+write-1-set/write-1-clear (W1SC) semantics.
+
+All uses of bmc-misc-ctrl must be documented under Valid Uses below.
+
+The bindings are similar in nature to register-bit-led.
+
+Required Properties
+-------------------
+
+compatible: Must be "bmc-misc-ctrl"
+offset: A one or three cell property describing the registers
+ associated with the field.
+
+ If the optional property 'set-clear' is not present then the
+ node describes a register with read-modify-write semantics. The
+ offset property has one cell describing the register of
+ interest.
+
+ If the optional property 'set-clear' is present then the node
+ describes a register set that together implement read,
+ write-1-set and write-1-clear semantics. The offset property
+ must be three cells, the first is the address of the register
+ to read from, the second the write-1-set register and the third
+ write-1-clear.
+
+mask: A mask whose set bits represent the bits of the field.
+label: The name of the field
+
+Optional Properties
+-------------------
+
+read-only: Define a read-only field (RMW/W1SC irrelevant).
+set-clear: Define whether the field exists in a RMW or W1SC register set
+default-value: Single cell applicable to RMW. The field will be updated to the
+ cell's value.
+default-set: For W1SC, set all bits in the field
+default-clear: For W1SC, clear all bits in the field
+
