    I have rebased to a more recent version of linux-next. I'll make sure to
    send dependency information with the next patch set. I'll also split it
    into two patch sets, since the class driver has no dependencies on patches
    that are in flight.

    Sure - I'll create the documentation file.

    The n3000 implementation of the MAX10 BMC, and eventually the d5005
    implementation of the MAX10 BMC, both instantiate the MAX10 BMC Secure
    Engine as a sub device. There is a dfl feature ID for the SPI interface
    to the BMC, but no dfl feature ID for the secure engine itself.

    Given that the security manager is dependent on other hardware and
    firmware to manage the root entry hashes and to verify and program
    the images, I think it is safe to say that implementations of the
    security manager will always be implemented as sub devices. I can't
    think of a case for giving it it's own dfl feature ID.

    The class driver, of course, is an abstraction above the MAX10 BMC

    The Intel FPGA Security Manager could be used by Intel FPGA devices that
    are implemented without a Device Feature List.

    There are some slight differences in the implementation of the MAX10 BMC
    Secure Engine between the n3000 and d5005 implementations. The d5005
    support is not in the current patch set, but when it is included there
    will be a different device name to indicate which code variations should
    be active. Also, different platform data can be passed into the secure
    engine by the parent MAX10 device if needed for new versions of the BMC.
