+What: /sys/devices/platform/kim/dev_name
+Date: January 2010
+KernelVersion: 2.6.38
+Contact: "Pavan Savoy" <pavan_savoy@ti.com>
+Description:
+ Name of the UART device at which the WL128x chip
+ is connected. example: "/dev/ttyS0".
+ The device name flows down to architecture specific board
+ initialization file from the SFI/ATAGS bootloader
+ firmware. The name exposed is read from the user-space
+ dameon and opens the device when install is requested.
+
+What: /sys/devices/platform/kim/baud_rate
+Date: January 2010
+KernelVersion: 2.6.38
+Contact: "Pavan Savoy" <pavan_savoy@ti.com>
+Description:
+ The maximum reliable baud-rate the host can support.
+ Different platforms tend to have different high-speed
+ UART configurations, so the baud-rate needs to be set
+ locally and also sent across to the WL128x via a HCI-VS
+ command. The entry is read and made use by the user-space
+ daemon when the ldisc install is requested.
+
+What: /sys/devices/platform/kim/flow_cntrl
+Date: January 2010
+KernelVersion: 2.6.38
+Contact: "Pavan Savoy" <pavan_savoy@ti.com>
+Description:
+ The WL128x makes use of flow control mechanism, and this
+ entry most often should be 1, the host's UART is required
+ to have the capability of flow-control, or else this
+ entry can be made use of for exceptions.
+
+What: /sys/devices/platform/kim/install
+Date: January 2010
+KernelVersion: 2.6.38
+Contact: "Pavan Savoy" <pavan_savoy@ti.com>
+Description:
+ When one of the protocols Bluetooth, FM or GPS wants to make
+ use of the shared UART transport, it registers to the shared
+ transport driver, which will signal the user-space for opening,
+ configuring baud and install line discipline via this sysfs
+ entry. This entry would be polled upon by the user-space
+ daemon managing the UART, and is notified about the change
+ by the sysfs_notify. The value would be '1' when UART needs
+ to be opened/ldisc installed, and would be '0' when UART
+ is no more required and needs to be closed.
