+GPIO-based I2C Bus Mux
+
+This binding describes an I2C bus multiplexer that uses GPIOs to
+route the I2C signals.

+
+Required properties:
+- compatible: i2c-mux-gpio
+- i2c-parent: The phandle of the I2C bus that this multiplexer's master-side
+ port is connected to.
+- mux-gpios: list of gpios used to control the muxer
+* Standard I2C mux properties. See mux.txt in this directory.
+* I2C child bus nodes. See mux.txt in this directory.
+
+Optional properties:
+- idle-state: value to set the muxer to when idle. When no value is
+ given, it defaults to the last value used.
+
+For each i2c child node, an I2C child bus will be created. They will
+be numbered based on their order in the device tree.
+
+Whenever an access is made to a device on a child bus, the value set
+in the revelant node's reg property will be output using the list of
+GPIOs, the first in the list holding the least-significant value.
+
+If an idle state is defined, using the idle-state (optional) property,
+whenever an access is not being made to a device on a child bus, the
+GPIOs will be set according to the idle value.
+
+If an idle state is not defined, the most recently used value will be
+left programmed into hardware whenever no access is being made to a
+device on a child bus.
+
+Example:
+ i2cmux {
+ compatible = "i2c-mux-gpio";
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+ mux-gpios = <&gpio1 22 0 &gpio1 23 0>;
+ i2c-parent = <&i2c1>;
+
+ i2c@1 {
+ reg = <1>;
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+
+ ssd1307: oled@3c {
+ compatible = "solomon,ssd1307fb-i2c";
+ reg = <0x3c>;
+ pwms = <&pwm 4 3000>;
+ reset-gpios = <&gpio2 7 1>;
+ reset-active-low;
+ };
+ };
+
+ i2c@3 {
+ reg = <3>;
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+
+ pca9555: pca9555@20 {
+ compatible = "nxp,pca9555";
+ gpio-controller;
+ #gpio-cells = <2>;
+ reg = <0x20>;
+ };
+ };
