Actually dram0 and dram1 are data memories for PRU0 and PRU1 respectively.
Isn't it better if they are moved to the pru node?
e.g.

pru0: pru@34000 {
compatible = "ti,am3356-pru";
reg = <0x34000 0x2000>,
<0x22000 0x400>,
<0x22400 0x100>,
<0x0 0x2000>;
reg-names = "iram", "control", "debug", "dram";
...
};

pru1: pru@38000 {
compatible = "ti,am3356-pru";
reg = <0x38000 0x2000>,
<0x24000 0x400>,
<0x24400 0x100>,
<0x2000 0x2000>;
reg-names = "iram", "control", "debug", "dram";
...
};

I think it is better to place a restriction that firmware on PRU0 cannot use data
memory of PRU1 and vice versa.

Application drivers do sometimes need to read/write to data memory. The pru_rproc
driver could provide a API for the application drivers to get virtual address of
the respective PRU's data memory.

Shared RAM is not so straight forward. Both PRU firmwares and both application drivers
might need to read/write here. The area split is decided by firmware design and there
is no hardware protection to prevent from stomping on each others toes.

We need a carveout based memory allocator at least I think that can do a
allocate(base_offset, size); into shared RAM.

This could be used by pru_rproc driver at firmware load time and by application drivers
at initialization time.

Thoughts?

OK.

Yes the app-node is optional. I will mention it.

No, ti,pruss-gp-mux-sel and ti,pru-interrupt-map are not firmware options.
But these settings are application/firmware specific.

ti,pru-interrupt-map specifies the configuration to be used for the INTC interrupt
controller.

ti,pruss-gp-mux-sel is used to configure this register.
"Table 30-20. PRUSS_GPCFG0" in http://www.tij.co.jp/jp/lit/ug/spruhz7h/spruhz7h.pdf
"29:26 PR1_PRU0_GP_MUX_SEL"

It configures how the pins from the PRUSS module are routed internally
to the various modules.

see "30.2.1 PRU-ICSS I/O Interface"
and "Table 30-1. PRU-ICSS1 I/O Signals"

Yes, compatible is a required property as we need to load
the appropriate application (kernel space) driver for it.
I will fix the example.

To summarize:

I'll mark the app node as optional. Only required if a kernel
driver is required for the application.
Compatible is mandatory for app node.
ti,pruss-gp-mux-sel and ti,pru-interrupt-map are optional
for app node.
