This commit adds a dt-bindings document of PECI adapter driver for

This is the frequency of the bus or used to derive it? It would be
better to specify the bus frequency instead and have the driver
calculate its internal freq. And then use "bus-frequency" instead.

I agree with you. Actually, it is being used for operation frequency
of PECI controller module in SoC so it's different from the meaning of
"bus-frequency". I'll change it to "operation-frequency".

No, now you've gone from a standard property name to something custom.
Why do you need to set the frequency in DT if it is not related to the
interface frequency?


Actually, the interface frequency is affected by the operation frequency
but there is no description of its relationship in datasheet. I'll check
again about the detail to ASPEED chip vendor and will use
'bus-frequency' if available.

I investigated it more deeply. Basically, by the spec, PECI bus speed
cannot be set as a fixed speed. A PECI bus can have a wide speed range
from 2Kbps to 2Mbps which is dynamically set by a handshaking sequence
between an originator and clients called 'timing negotiation' in spec.
This timing negotiation behavior happens on every single transaction so the
bus speed also can vary on every transactions. So I'm thinking a custom
property name for it, 'peci-clk-frequency' if it is acceptable.

Okay, seems bus-frequency is not appropriate here. So use
'clock-frequency' (note the '-' not '_' as that is the standard


Thanks! I'll use 'clock-frequency' for it.
