+GPIO controllers on MPC8xxx SoCs
+
+This is for the non-QE/CPM/GUTs GPIO controllers as found on
+8349, 8572, 8610 and compatible.
+
+Every GPIO controller node must have #gpio-cells property defined,
+this information will be used to translate gpio-specifiers.
+
+Required properties:
+- compatible : "fsl,<CHIP>-gpio" followed by "fsl,mpc8349-gpio" for
+ 83xx, "fsl,mpc8572-gpio" for 85xx and "fsl,mpc8610-gpio" for 86xx.
+- #gpio-cells : Should be two. The first cell is the pin number and the
+ second cell is used to specify optional parameters (currently unused).
+ - interrupts : Interrupt mapping for GPIO IRQ.
+ - interrupt-parent : Phandle for the interrupt controller that
+ services interrupts for this device.
+- gpio-controller : Marks the port as GPIO controller.
+
+Example of gpio-controller nodes for a MPC8347 SoC:
+
+ gpio1: gpio-controller@c00 {
+ #gpio-cells = <2>;
+ compatible = "fsl,mpc8347-gpio", "fsl,mpc8349-gpio";
+ reg = <0xc00 0x100>;
+ interrupts = <74 0x8>;
+ interrupt-parent = <&ipic>;
+ gpio-controller;
+ };
+
+ gpio2: gpio-controller@d00 {
+ #gpio-cells = <2>;
+ compatible = "fsl,mpc8347-gpio", "fsl,mpc8349-gpio";
+ reg = <0xd00 0x100>;
+ interrupts = <75 0x8>;
+ interrupt-parent = <&ipic>;
+ gpio-controller;
+ };
+
+See booting-without-of.txt for details of how to specify GPIO
+information for devices.
+
+To use GPIO pins as interrupt sources for peripherals, specify the
+GPIO controller as the interrupt parent and define GPIO number +
+trigger mode using the interrupts property, which is defined like
+this:
+
+interrupts = <number trigger>, where:
+ - number: GPIO pin (0..31)
+ - trigger: trigger mode:
+ 2 = trigger on falling edge
+ 3 = trigger on both edges
+
+Example of device using this is:
+
+ funkyfpga@0 {
+ compatible = "funky-fpga";
+ ...
+ interrupts = <4 3>;
+ interrupt-parent = <&gpio1>;
+ };

+Lantiq SoC Serial To Parallel (STP) GPIO controller
+
+The Serial To Parallel (STP) is found on MIPS based Lantiq socs. It is a
+peripheral controller used to drive external shift register cascades. At most
+3 groups of 8 bits can be driven. The hardware is able to allow the DSL modem
+to drive the 2 LSBs of the cascade automatically.
+
+
+Required properties:
+- compatible : Should be "lantiq,gpio-stp-xway"
+- reg : Address and length of the register set for the device
+- #gpio-cells : Should be two. The first cell is the pin number and
+ the second cell is used to specify optional parameters (currently
+ unused).
+- gpio-controller : Marks the device node as a gpio controller.
+
+Optional properties:
+- lantiq,shadow : The default value that we shall assume as already set on the
+ shift register cascade.
+- lantiq,groups : Set the 3 bit mask to select which of the 3 groups are enabled
+ in the shift register cascade.
+- lantiq,dsl : The dsl core can control the 2 LSBs of the gpio cascade. This 2 bit
+ property can enable this feature.
+- lantiq,phy1 : The gphy1 core can control 3 bits of the gpio cascade.
+- lantiq,phy2 : The gphy2 core can control 3 bits of the gpio cascade.
+- lantiq,rising : use rising instead of falling edge for the shift register
+
+Example:

+Specifying GPIO information for devices
+============================================
+
+1) gpios property
+-----------------
+
+Nodes that makes use of GPIOs should specify them using one or more
+properties, each containing a 'gpio-list':
+
+ gpio-list ::= <single-gpio> [gpio-list]
+ single-gpio ::= <gpio-phandle> <gpio-specifier>
+ gpio-phandle : phandle to gpio controller node
+ gpio-specifier : Array of #gpio-cells specifying specific gpio
+ (controller specific)
+
+GPIO properties should be named "[<name>-]gpios". Exact
+meaning of each gpios property must be documented in the device tree
+binding for each device.
+
+For example, the following could be used to describe gpios pins to use
+as chip select lines; with chip selects 0, 1 and 3 populated, and chip
+select 2 left empty:
+
+ gpio1: gpio1 {
+ gpio-controller
+ #gpio-cells = <2>;
+ };
+ gpio2: gpio2 {
+ gpio-controller
+ #gpio-cells = <1>;
+ };
+ [...]
+ chipsel-gpios = <&gpio1 12 0>,
+ <&gpio1 13 0>,
+ <0>, /* holes are permitted, means no GPIO 2 */
+ <&gpio2 2>;
+
+Note that gpio-specifier length is controller dependent. In the
+above example, &gpio1 uses 2 cells to specify a gpio, while &gpio2
+only uses one.
+
+gpio-specifier may encode: bank, pin position inside the bank,
+whether pin is open-drain and whether pin is logically inverted.
+Exact meaning of each specifier cell is controller specific, and must
+be documented in the device tree binding for the device.
+
+Example of the node using GPIOs:
+
+ node {
+ gpios = <&qe_pio_e 18 0>;
+ };
+
+In this example gpio-specifier is "18 0" and encodes GPIO pin number,
+and empty GPIO flags as accepted by the "qe_pio_e" gpio-controller.
+
+2) gpio-controller nodes
+------------------------
+
+Every GPIO controller node must both an empty "gpio-controller"
+property, and have #gpio-cells contain the size of the gpio-specifier.
+
+Example of two SOC GPIO banks defined as gpio-controller nodes:
+
+ qe_pio_a: gpio-controller@1400 {
+ #gpio-cells = <2>;
+ compatible = "fsl,qe-pario-bank-a", "fsl,qe-pario-bank";
+ reg = <0x1400 0x18>;
+ gpio-controller;
+ };
+
+ qe_pio_e: gpio-controller@1460 {
+ #gpio-cells = <2>;
+ compatible = "fsl,qe-pario-bank-e", "fsl,qe-pario-bank";
+ reg = <0x1460 0x18>;
+ gpio-controller;
+ };
+
+2.1) gpio-controller and pinctrl subsystem
+------------------------------------------
+
+gpio-controller on a SOC might be tightly coupled with the pinctrl
+subsystem, in the sense that the pins can be used by other functions
+together with optional gpio feature.
+
+While the pin allocation is totally managed by the pin ctrl subsystem,
+gpio (under gpiolib) is still maintained by gpio drivers. It may happen
+that different pin ranges in a SoC is managed by different gpio drivers.
+
+This makes it logical to let gpio drivers announce their pin ranges to
+the pin ctrl subsystem and call 'pinctrl_request_gpio' in order to
+request the corresponding pin before any gpio usage.
+
+For this, the gpio controller can use a pinctrl phandle and pins to
+announce the pinrange to the pin ctrl subsystem. For example,
+
+ qe_pio_e: gpio-controller@1460 {
+ #gpio-cells = <2>;
+ compatible = "fsl,qe-pario-bank-e", "fsl,qe-pario-bank";
+ reg = <0x1460 0x18>;
+ gpio-controller;
+ gpio-ranges = <&pinctrl1 20 10>, <&pinctrl2 50 20>;
+
+ }
+
+where,
+ &pinctrl1 and &pinctrl2 is the phandle to the pinctrl DT node.
+
+ Next values specify the base pin and number of pins for the range
+ handled by 'qe_pio_e' gpio. In the given example from base pin 20 to
+ pin 29 under pinctrl1 and pin 50 to pin 69 under pinctrl2 is handled
+ by this gpio controller.
+
+The pinctrl node must have "#gpio-range-cells" property to show number of
+arguments to pass with phandle from gpio controllers node.

+The only additional property is the intel,muxctl property which holds the

+
+There is no compatible property for now because the driver is probed via
+PCI id (vendor 0x8086 device 0x2e67).

+ - <2nd cell>: The level-sense information, encoded as follows:
+ 4 - active high level-sensitive
+ 8 - active low level-sensitive

+=== ST Microelectronics SPEAr SPI CS Driver ===
+
+SPEAr platform provides a provision to control chipselects of ARM PL022 Prime
+Cell spi controller through its system registers, which otherwise remains under
+PL022 control. If chipselect remain under PL022 control then they would be
+released as soon as transfer is over and TxFIFO becomes empty. This is not
+desired by some of the device protocols above spi which expect (multiple)
+transfers without releasing their chipselects.
+
+Chipselects can be controlled by software by turning them as GPIOs. SPEAr
+provides another interface through system registers through which software can
+directly control each PL022 chipselect. Hence, it is natural for SPEAr to export
+the control of this interface as gpio.
+
+Required properties:
+
+ * compatible: should be defined as "st,spear-spics-gpio"
+ * reg: mentioning address range of spics controller
+ * st-spics,peripcfg-reg: peripheral configuration register offset
+ * st-spics,sw-enable-bit: bit offset to enable sw control
+ * st-spics,cs-value-bit: bit offset to drive chipselect low or high
+ * st-spics,cs-enable-mask: chip select number bit mask
+ * st-spics,cs-enable-shift: chip select number program offset
+ * gpio-controller: Marks the device node as gpio controller
+ * #gpio-cells: should be 1 and will mention chip select number
+
+All the above bit offsets are within peripcfg register.
