-What: /sys/bus/rpmsg/devices/.../name
-Date: June 2011
-KernelVersion: 3.3
-Contact: Ohad Ben-Cohen <ohad@wizery.com>
-Description:
- Every rpmsg device is a communication channel with a remote
- processor. Channels are identified with a (textual) name,
- which is maximum 32 bytes long (defined as RPMSG_NAME_SIZE in
- rpmsg.h).
-
- This sysfs entry contains the name of this channel.

-Contact: Ohad Ben-Cohen <ohad@wizery.com>
-Description:
- Every rpmsg device is a communication channel with a remote
- processor. Channels have a local ("source") rpmsg address,
- and remote ("destination") rpmsg address. When an entity
- starts listening on one end of a channel, it assigns it with
- a unique rpmsg address (a 32 bits integer). This way when
- inbound messages arrive to this address, the rpmsg core
- dispatches them to the listening entity (a kernel driver).
-
- This sysfs entry contains the src (local) rpmsg address
- of this channel. If it contains 0xffffffff, then an address
- wasn't assigned (can happen if no driver exists for this
- channel).

- from any remote rpmsg client; it is not bound to a single

-What: /sys/bus/rpmsg/devices/.../announce
-Date: June 2011
-KernelVersion: 3.3
-Contact: Ohad Ben-Cohen <ohad@wizery.com>
-Description:
- Every rpmsg device is a communication channel with a remote
- processor. Channels are identified by a textual name (see
- /sys/bus/rpmsg/devices/.../name above) and have a local
- ("source") rpmsg address, and remote ("destination") rpmsg
- address.
-
- A channel is first created when an entity, whether local
- or remote, starts listening on it for messages (and is thus
- called an rpmsg server).
-
- When that happens, a "name service" announcement is sent
- to the other processor, in order to let it know about the
- creation of the channel (this way remote clients know they
- can start sending messages).
-
- This sysfs entry tells us whether the channel is a local
- server channel that is announced (values are either
- true or false).
