Subject[PATCH 0/2] of: dynamic: restrict overlay by targets
Restrict which nodes are valid targets for a DT overlay.

Add a flag bit to struct device_node allowing nodes to be marked as
valid target for overlays.

A driver that is always intended to handle DT overlays can
enable overlays by calling a function for its DT node.

For individual nodes that need to be opened up for a specific use,
adding the property "overlay-allowed" enables overlays targeting
that node. I'll need to document the DT property, not sure where
specifically. New file bindings/overlay.txt?

This patchset differs from the RFC:
* Added a flag bit and got rid of the whitelist
* Renamed the functions that enable a node
* Added a DT property

Alan Tull (2):
of: overlay: add flag enabling overlays and enable fpga-region
of: dynamic: add overlay-allowed DT property
