+ Samsung GPIO implementation
+ ===========================
+This outlines the Samsung GPIO implementation and the architecture
+specific calls provided alongside the drivers/gpio core.
+S3C24XX (Legacy)
+See Documentation/arm/Samsung-S3C24XX/GPIO.txt for more information
+about these devices. Their implementation has been brought into line
+with the core samsung implementation described in this document.
+GPIOLIB integration
+The gpio implementation uses gpiolib as much as possible, only providing
+specific calls for the items that require Samsung specific handling, such
+as pin special-function or pull resistor control.
+GPIO numbering is synchronised between the Samsung and gpiolib system.
+PIN configuration
+Pin configuration is specific to the Samsung architecture, with each SoC
+registering the necessary information for the core gpio configuration
+implementation to configure pins as necessary.
+The s3c_gpio_cfgpin() and s3c_gpio_setpull() provide the means for a
+driver or machine to change gpio configuration.
+See arch/arm/plat-samsung/include/plat/gpio-cfg.h for more information
+on these functions.
