Subject[PATCH v2 5/7] dt-bindings: serial: Add binding for rs485 receiver enable GPIO
From: Heiko Stuebner <>

RS485 has two signals to control transmissions "drivee enable" (RE) and
"receiver enable" (DE). RE is already handled via the uarts RTS signal
while RE signal on most implementations doesn't get handled separately
at all.

As there still will be cases where this is needed though add a gpio
property for declaring this signal pin.
