+MediaTek GCE
+===============
+
+The Global Command Engine (GCE) is used to help read/write registers with
+critical time limitation, such as updating display configuration during the
+vblank. The GCE can be used to implement the Command Queue (CMDQ) driver.
+
+CMDQ driver uses mailbox framework for communication. Please refer to
+../../mailbox/mailbox.txt for generic information about mailbox device-tree
+bindings.
+
+Required properties:
+- compatible: Must be "mediatek,mt8173-gce"
+- reg: Address range of the GCE unit
+- interrupts: The interrupt signal from the GCE block
+- clock: Clocks according to the common clock binding
+- clock-names: Must be "gce" to stand for GCE clock
+- #mbox-cells: Should be 2
+
+Required properties for a client device:
+- mediatek,gce: If a client asks GCE to access its registers, it should have
+ this property and point to the respective GCE block.
+- mboxes: If a client will communicate with GCE via mailbox, it should have
+ this property and list of phandle, mailbox channel specifiers, and atomic
+ execution flag.
+
+Example:
+
+ gce: gce@10212000 {
+ compatible = "mediatek,mt8173-gce";
+ reg = <0 0x10212000 0 0x1000>;
+ interrupts = <GIC_SPI 135 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_LOW>;
+ clocks = <&infracfg CLK_INFRA_GCE>;
+ clock-names = "gce";
+
+ #mbox-cells = <2>;
+ };
+
+Example for a client device:
+
+ mmsys: clock-controller@14000000 {
+ compatible = "mediatek,mt8173-mmsys";
+ mediatek,gce = <&gce>;
+ mboxes = <&gce 0 1 /* main display with atomic execution */
+ &gce 1 1>; /* sub display with atomic execution */
+ ...
+ };
