Subject[PATCH 0/8] USB: add device-tree support for interfaces
This series adds support for representing USB interfaces in device tree
by implementing support for "interface nodes" and "combined nodes" from
the OF specification.

This is needed to be able to describe non-discoverable properties of
permanently attached USB devices and their interfaces such as any
i2c-clients connected to a USB-i2c bridge (e.g. the dln2 mfd) or,
eventually, devices connected to usb-serial converters (to be used with

As part of this series the current binding for USB devices is cleaned
up and some already-used properties of "host-controller nodes" and "hub
nodes" are explicitly defined.

While doing this work I realised that a broken binding for USB-port LED
triggers had recently been merged. This trigger implementation assumes
an undocumented and conflicting binding for USB (root) hub ports, which
in fact lack a representation in device tree (the child nodes of hub
nodes represent the attached USB devices):

80dc6e1cd85f ("dt-bindings: leds: document new trigger-sources property")

In this series I only address an of_node leak in the trigger
implementation and add a FIXME about the port/device mixup. Note that
some broadcom dts have already started using such a "port" binding:

a503cf0cbe66 ("ARM: dts: BCM53573: Specify USB ports of on-SoC controllers")
69d22c70ac9a ("ARM: dts: BCM5301X: Specify USB ports for each controller")

To fix this, any triggers need to be described using properties of the
host-controller (or hub) rather than of their children.
