Subject[PATCH v4 13/14] dt-bindings: of: Add restricted DMA pool
Date
Introduce the new compatible string, restricted-dma-pool, for restricted
DMA. One can specify the address and length of the restricted DMA memory
region by restricted-dma-pool in the reserved-memory node.

+ used as a pool of restricted DMA buffers for a set of devices. The
+ memory region would be the only region accessible to those devices.
+ When using this, the no-map and reusable properties must not be set,
+ so the operating system can create a virtual mapping that will be used
+ for synchronization. The main purpose for restricted DMA is to
+ mitigate the lack of DMA access control on systems without an IOMMU,
+ which could result in the DMA accessing the system memory at
+ unexpected times and/or unexpected addresses, possibly leading to data
+ leakage or corruption. The feature on its own provides a basic level
+ of protection against the DMA overwriting buffer contents at
+ unexpected times. However, to protect against general data leakage and
+ system memory corruption, the system needs to provide way to lock down
+ the memory access, e.g., MPU.
