Add device binding documentation for Qualcomm Technology Inc's RPMH RSC
driver. The hardware block is used for communicating resource state



requests for shared resources.

Cc: devicet...@vger.kernel.org
Signed-off-by: Lina Iyer <il...@codeaurora.org>

Changes in v2:
        - Amend text to describe the registers in reg property
        - Add reg-names for the registers
        - Update examples to use GIC_SPI in interrupts instead of 0
        - Rephrase incorrect description

Changes in v3:
        - Fix unwanted capitalization
        - Remove clients from the examples, this doc does not describe
        - Rephrase introductory paragraph
        - Remove hardware specifics from DT bindings

Shouldn't this go into bindings/soc/qcom/ ?

Didn;t realize the location. Thanks for pointing out.

+Requests can be made for the state of a resource, when the subsystem is active

Not sure what this last sentence has to do with the DT binding. We
generally try to avoid saying 'Linux' or 'driver' in DT binding
documents, because they usually document hardware.

This para can go away.

+- compatible:
+       Usage: required
+       Value type: <string>

+- reg:

+- reg-names:
+       Usage: required


No, it is required. Driver has been using the by_name for clarity.

+       Value type: <string>
+       Definition: Maps the register specified in the reg property. Must be

+- interrupts:
+       Usage: required
+       Value type: <prop-encoded-interrupt>
+       Definition: The interrupt that trips when a message complete/response
+                  is received for this DRV from the accelerators.
+- qcom,drv-id:
+       Usage: required
+       Value type: <u32>
+       Definition: the id of the DRV in the RSC block.

+       Value type: <prop-encoded-array>
+       Definition: the tuple defining the configuration of TCS.

+Drivers that want to use the RSC to communicate with RPMH must specify their

Is that going to work for drivers that want to talk to two or more RSCs?
I suppose that they'll have to hook up into some sort of framework like
clk or regulator and then drivers that want to use two RSCs for those
things would be linked to those sub-device drivers with the normal clk
or regulator bindings?

Correct. This follows the same model as RPM SMD driver.

+Example 1:
+For a TCS whose RSC base address is is 0x179C0000 and is at a DRV id of 2, the
+register offsets for DRV2 start at 0D00, the register calculations are like
+this -
+First tuple: 0x179C0000 + 0x10000 * 2 = 0x179E0000
+Second tuple: 0x179E0000 + 0xD00 = 0x179E0D00
+       apps_rsc: rsc@179e000 {
+               label = "apps_rsc";
+               compatible = "qcom,rpmh-rsc";
+               reg = <0x179e0000 0x10000>, <0x179e0d00 0x3000>;
+               reg-names = "drv", "tcs";
+               interrupts = <GIC_SPI 5 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
+               qcom,drv-id = <2>;
+               qcom,tcs-config = <SLEEP_TCS   3>,
+                                 <WAKE_TCS    3>,
+                                 <ACTIVE_TCS  2>,
+                                 <CONTROL_TCS 1>;

Could qcom,tcs-config become something more like below?

        #qcom,sleep-tcs = <3>;
        #qcom,wake-tcs = <3>;
        #qcom,active-tcs = <2>;
        #qcom,control-tcs = <1>;

I don't really understand the binding design to have many cells with the
*_TCS defines indicating what comes next.

This format helps preserve the order in which the TCS are designed in
the firmware. Thats additional information that is described by the
