-* Open PIC Binding
-
-This binding specifies what properties must be available in the device tree
-representation of an Open PIC compliant interrupt controller. This binding is
-based on the binding defined for Open PIC in [1] and is a superset of that
-binding.
-
-Required properties:
-
- NOTE: Many of these descriptions were paraphrased here from [1] to aid
- readability.
-
- - compatible: Specifies the compatibility list for the PIC. The type
- shall be <string> and the value shall include "open-pic".
-
- - reg: Specifies the base physical address(s) and size(s) of this
- PIC's addressable register space. The type shall be <prop-encoded-array>.
-
- - interrupt-controller: The presence of this property identifies the node
- as an Open PIC. No property value shall be defined.
-
- - #interrupt-cells: Specifies the number of cells needed to encode an
- interrupt source. The type shall be a <u32> and the value shall be 2.
-
- - #address-cells: Specifies the number of cells needed to encode an
- address. The type shall be <u32> and the value shall be 0. As such,
- 'interrupt-map' nodes do not have to specify a parent unit address.
-
-Optional properties:
-
- - pic-no-reset: The presence of this property indicates that the PIC
- shall not be reset during runtime initialization. No property value shall
- be defined. The presence of this property also mandates that any
- initialization related to interrupt sources shall be limited to sources
- explicitly referenced in the device tree.
-
-* Interrupt Specifier Definition
-
- Interrupt specifiers consists of 2 cells encoded as
- follows:
-
- - <1st-cell>: The interrupt-number that identifies the interrupt source.
-
- - <2nd-cell>: The level-sense information, encoded as follows:
- 0 = low-to-high edge triggered
- 1 = active low level-sensitive
- 2 = active high level-sensitive
- 3 = high-to-low edge triggered
-
-* Examples
-
-Example 1:
-
- /*
- * An Open PIC interrupt controller
- */
- mpic: pic@40000 {
- // This is an interrupt controller node.
- interrupt-controller;
-
- // No address cells so that 'interrupt-map' nodes which reference
- // this Open PIC node do not need a parent address specifier.
- #address-cells = <0>;
-
- // Two cells to encode interrupt sources.
- #interrupt-cells = <2>;
-
- // Offset address of 0x40000 and size of 0x40000.
- reg = <0x40000 0x40000>;
-
- // Compatible with Open PIC.
- compatible = "open-pic";
-
- // The PIC shall not be reset.
- pic-no-reset;
- };
-
-Example 2:
-
- /*
- * An interrupt generating device that is wired to an Open PIC.
- */
- serial0: serial@4500 {
- // Interrupt source '42' that is active high level-sensitive.
- // Note that there are only two cells as specified in the interrupt
- // parent's '#interrupt-cells' property.
- interrupts = <42 2>;
-
- // The interrupt controller that this device is wired to.
- interrupt-parent = <&mpic>;
- };
