+* ARM PrimeCell PL330 DMA Controller
+
+The ARM PrimeCell PL330 DMA controller can move blocks of memory contents
+between memory and peripherals or memory to memory.
+
+Required properties:
+ - compatible: should include both "arm,pl330" and "arm,primecell".
+ - reg: physical base address of the controller and length of memory mapped
+ region.
+ - interrupts: interrupt number to the cpu.
+
+Optional properties:
+ - dma-coherent : Present if dma operations are coherent
+ - #dma-cells: must be <1>. used to represent the number of integer
+ cells in the dmas property of client device.
+ - dma-channels: contains the total number of DMA channels supported by the DMAC
+ - dma-requests: contains the total number of DMA requests supported by the DMAC
+
+Example:
+
+ pdma0: pdma@12680000 {
+ compatible = "arm,pl330", "arm,primecell";
+ reg = <0x12680000 0x1000>;
+ interrupts = <99>;
+ #dma-cells = <1>;
+ #dma-channels = <8>;
+ #dma-requests = <32>;
+ };
+
+Client drivers (device nodes requiring dma transfers from dev-to-mem or
+mem-to-dev) should specify the DMA channel numbers and dma channel names
+as shown below.
+
+ [property name] = <[phandle of the dma controller] [dma request id]>;
+ [property name] = <[dma channel name]>
+
+ where 'dma request id' is the dma request number which is connected
+ to the client controller. The 'property name' 'dmas' and 'dma-names'
+ as required by the generic dma device tree binding helpers. The dma
+ names correspond 1:1 with the dma request ids in the dmas property.
+
+ Example: dmas = <&pdma0 12
+ &pdma1 11>;
+ dma-names = "tx", "rx";
