Subject[PATCH net-next v2 1/4] dt-bindings: dmaengine: bam_dma: Add "powered remotely" mode
In some configurations, the BAM DMA controller is set up by a remote
processor and the local processor can simply start making use of it
without setting up the BAM. This is already supported using the
"qcom,controlled-remotely" property.

However, for some reason another possible configuration is that the
remote processor is responsible for powering up the BAM, but we are
still responsible for initializing it (e.g. resetting it etc). Add
a "qcom,powered-remotely" property to describe that configuration.

Signed-off-by: Stephan Gerhold <>
Changes since RFC:
- Rename qcom,remote-power-collapse -> qcom,powered-remotely
for consistency with "qcom,controlled-remotely"

NOTE: This is *not* a compile-time requirement for the BAM-DMUX driver
so this could also go through the dmaengine tree.

Also note that there is an ongoing effort to convert these bindings
to DT schema but sadly there were not any updates for a while. :/
