+ AD525x Digital Potentiometers
+---------------------------------
+
+The ad525x_dpot driver exports a simple sysfs interface. This allows you to
+work with the immediate resistance settings as well as update the saved startup
+settings. Access to the factory programmed tolerance is also provided, but
+interpretation of this settings is required by the end application according to
+the specific part in use.
+
+---------
+ Files
+---------
+
+Each dpot device will have a set of eeprom, rdac, and tolerance files. How
+many depends on the actual part you have, as will the range of allowed values.
+
+The eeprom files are used to program the startup value of the device.
+
+The rdac files are used to program the immediate value of the device.
+
+The tolerance files are the read-only factory programmed tolerance settings
+and may vary greatly on a part-by-part basis. For exact interpretation of
+this field, please consult the datasheet for your part. This is presented
+as a hex file for easier parsing.
+
+-----------
+ Example
+-----------
+
+Locate the device in your sysfs tree. This is probably easiest by going into
+the common i2c directory and locating the device by the i2c slave address.
+
+ # ls /sys/bus/i2c/devices/
+ 0-0022 0-0027 0-002f
+
+So assuming the device in question is on the first i2c bus and has the slave
+address of 0x2f, we descend (unrelated sysfs entries have been trimmed).
+
+ # ls /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-002f/
+ eeprom0 rdac0 tolerance0
+
+You can use simple reads/writes to access these files:
+
+ # cd /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-002f/
+
+ # cat eeprom0
+ 0
+ # echo 10 > eeprom0
+ # cat eeprom0
+ 10
+
+ # cat rdac0
+ 5
+ # echo 3 > rdac0
+ # cat rdac0
+ 3

+
+Description
+-----------
+
+APDS990x is a combined ambient light and proximity sensor. ALS and proximity
+functionality are highly connected. ALS measurement path must be running
+while the proximity functionality is enabled.
+
+ALS produces raw measurement values for two channels: Clear channel
+(infrared + visible light) and IR only. However, threshold comparisons happen
+using clear channel only. Lux value and the threshold level on the HW
+might vary quite much depending the spectrum of the light source.
+
+Driver makes necessary conversions to both directions so that user handles
+only lux values. Lux value is calculated using information from the both
+channels. HW threshold level is calculated from the given lux value to match
+with current type of the lightning. Sometimes inaccuracy of the estimations
+lead to false interrupt, but that doesn't harm.
+
+ALS contains 4 different gain steps. Driver automatically
+selects suitable gain step. After each measurement, reliability of the results
+is estimated and new measurement is trigged if necessary.
+
+Platform data can provide tuned values to the conversion formulas if
+values are known. Otherwise plain sensor default values are used.
+
+Proximity side is little bit simpler. There is no need for complex conversions.
+It produces directly usable values.
+
+Driver controls chip operational state using pm_runtime framework.
+Voltage regulators are controlled based on chip operational state.

+Author:

+
+Description
+-----------
+BH1770GLC and SFH7770 are combined ambient light and proximity sensors.
+ALS and proximity parts operates on their own, but they shares common I2C
+interface and interrupt logic. In principle they can run on their own,
+but ALS side results are used to estimate reliability of the proximity sensor.
+
+ALS produces 16 bit lux values. The chip contains interrupt logic to produce
+low and high threshold interrupts.
+
+Proximity part contains IR-led driver up to 3 IR leds. The chip measures
+amount of reflected IR light and produces proximity result. Resolution is
+8 bit. Driver supports only one channel. Driver uses ALS results to estimate
+reliability of the proximity results. Thus ALS is always running while
+proximity detection is needed.
+
+Driver uses threshold interrupts to avoid need for polling the values.
+Proximity low interrupt doesn't exists in the chip. This is simulated
+by using a delayed work. As long as there is proximity threshold above
+interrupts the delayed work is pushed forward. So, when proximity level goes
+below the threshold value, there is no interrupt and the delayed work will
+finally run. This is handled as no proximity indication.
+
+Chip state is controlled via runtime pm framework when enabled in config.
+
+Calibscale factor is used to hide differences between the chips. By default
+value set to neutral state meaning factor of 1.00. To get proper values,
+calibrated source of light is needed as a reference. Calibscale factor is set
+so that measurement produces about the expected lux value.

+Overview
+--------
+
+This driver implements the support for Linux of Silicon Labs (Silabs)
+C2 Interface used for in-system programming of micro controllers.
+
+By using this driver you can reprogram the in-system flash without EC2
+or EC3 debug adapter. This solution is also useful in those systems
+where the micro controller is connected via special GPIOs pins.
+
+References
+----------
+
+The C2 Interface main references are at (http://www.silabs.com)
+Silicon Laboratories site], see:
+
+- AN127: FLASH Programming via the C2 Interface at
+http://www.silabs.com/Support Documents/TechnicalDocs/an127.pdf
+
+- C2 Specification at
+http://www.silabs.com/pages/DownloadDoc.aspx?FILEURL=Support%20Documents/TechnicalDocs/an127.pdf&src=SearchResults
+
+however it implements a two wire serial communication protocol (bit
+banging) designed to enable in-system programming, debugging, and
+boundary-scan testing on low pin-count Silicon Labs devices. Currently
+this code supports only flash programming but extensions are easy to
+add.
+
+Using the driver
+----------------
+
+Once the driver is loaded you can use sysfs support to get C2port's
+info or read/write in-system flash.
+
+# ls /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/
+access flash_block_size flash_erase rev_id
+dev_id flash_blocks_num flash_size subsystem/
+flash_access flash_data reset uevent
+
+Initially the C2port access is disabled since you hardware may have
+such lines multiplexed with other devices so, to get access to the
+C2port, you need the command:
+
+# echo 1 > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/access
+
+after that you should read the device ID and revision ID of the
+connected micro controller:
+
+# cat /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/dev_id
+8
+# cat /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/rev_id
+1
+
+However, for security reasons, the in-system flash access in not
+enabled yet, to do so you need the command:
+
+# echo 1 > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/flash_access
+
+After that you can read the whole flash:
+
+# cat /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/flash_data > image
+
+erase it:
+
+# echo 1 > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/flash_erase
+
+and write it:
+
+# cat image > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/flash_data
+
+after writing you have to reset the device to execute the new code:
+
+# echo 1 > /sys/class/c2port/c2port0/reset

+Description
+-----------
+
+This is a simple EEPROM module meant to enable reading the first 256 bytes
+of an EEPROM (on a SDRAM DIMM for example). However, it will access serial
+EEPROMs on any I2C adapter. The supported devices are generically called
+24Cxx, and are listed above; however the numbering for these
+industry-standard devices may vary by manufacturer.
+
+This module was a programming exercise to get used to the new project
+organization laid out by Frodo, but it should be at least completely
+effective for decoding the contents of EEPROMs on DIMMs.
+
+DIMMS will typically contain a 24C01A or 24C02, or the 34C02 variants.
+The other devices will not be found on a DIMM because they respond to more
+than one address.
+
+DDC Monitors may contain any device. Often a 24C01, which responds to all 8
+addresses, is found.
+
+Recent Sony Vaio laptops have an EEPROM at 0x57. We couldn't get the
+specification, so it is guess work and far from being complete.
+
+The Microchip 24AA52/24LCS52, ST M34C02, and others support an additional
+software write protect register at 0x30 - 0x37 (0x20 less than the memory
+location). The chip responds to "write quick" detection at this address but
+does not respond to byte reads. If this register is present, the lower 128
+bytes of the memory array are not write protected. Any byte data write to
+this address will write protect the memory array permanently, and the
+device will no longer respond at the 0x30-37 address. The eeprom driver
+does not support this register.
+
+Lacking functionality:
+
+* Full support for larger devices (24C04, 24C08, 24C16). These are not
+typically found on a PC. These devices will appear as separate devices at
+multiple addresses.
+
+* Support for really large devices (24C32, 24C64, 24C128, 24C256, 24C512).
+These devices require two-byte address fields and are not supported.
+
+* Enable Writing. Again, no technical reason why not, but making it easy
+to change the contents of the EEPROMs (on DIMMs anyway) also makes it easy
+to disable the DIMMs (potentially preventing the computer from booting)
+until the values are restored somehow.
+
+Use:
+
+After inserting the module (and any other required SMBus/i2c modules), you
+should have some EEPROM directories in /sys/bus/i2c/devices/* of names such
+as "0-0050". Inside each of these is a series of files, the eeprom file
+contains the binary data from EEPROM.

+
+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver implements support for the IDT ICS932S401 chip family.
+
+This chip has 4 clock outputs--a base clock for the CPU (which is likely
+multiplied to get the real CPU clock), a system clock, a PCI clock, a USB
+clock, and a reference clock. The driver reports selected and actual
+frequency. If spread spectrum mode is enabled, the driver also reports by what
+percent the clock signal is being spread, which should be between 0 and -0.5%.
+All frequencies are reported in KHz.
+
+The ICS932S401 monitors all inputs continuously. The driver will not read
+the registers more often than once every other second.
+
+Special Features
+----------------
+
+The clocks could be reprogrammed to increase system speed. I will not help you
+do this, as you risk damaging your system!

+-----------
+The ISL29003 is an integrated light sensor with a 16-bit integrating type
+ADC, I2C user programmable lux range select for optimized counts/lux, and

+
+
+Detection
+---------
+
+The ISL29003 does not have an ID register which could be used to identify

+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver provides support for the accelerometer found in various HP laptops
+sporting the feature officially called "HP Mobile Data Protection System 3D" or
+"HP 3D DriveGuard". It detects automatically laptops with this sensor. Known
+models (full list can be found in drivers/platform/x86/hp_accel.c) will have
+their axis automatically oriented on standard way (eg: you can directly play
+neverball). The accelerometer data is readable via
+/sys/devices/platform/lis3lv02d. Reported values are scaled
+to mg values (1/1000th of earth gravity).
+
+Sysfs attributes under /sys/devices/platform/lis3lv02d/:
+position - 3D position that the accelerometer reports. Format: "(x,y,z)"
+rate - read reports the sampling rate of the accelerometer device in HZ.
+ write changes sampling rate of the accelerometer device.
+ Only values which are supported by HW are accepted.
+selftest - performs selftest for the chip as specified by chip manufacturer.
+
+This driver also provides an absolute input class device, allowing
+the laptop to act as a pinball machine-esque joystick. Joystick device can be
+calibrated. Joystick device can be in two different modes.
+By default output values are scaled between -32768 .. 32767. In joystick raw
+mode, joystick and sysfs position entry have the same scale. There can be
+small difference due to input system fuzziness feature.
+Events are also available as input event device.
+
+Selftest is meant only for hardware diagnostic purposes. It is not meant to be
+used during normal operations. Position data is not corrupted during selftest
+but interrupt behaviour is not guaranteed to work reliably. In test mode, the
+sensing element is internally moved little bit. Selftest measures difference
+between normal mode and test mode. Chip specifications tell the acceptance
+limit for each type of the chip. Limits are provided via platform data
+to allow adjustment of the limits without a change to the actual driver.
+Seltest returns either "OK x y z" or "FAIL x y z" where x, y and z are
+measured difference between modes. Axes are not remapped in selftest mode.
+Measurement values are provided to help HW diagnostic applications to make
+final decision.
+
+On HP laptops, if the led infrastructure is activated, support for a led
+indicating disk protection will be provided as /sys/class/leds/hp::hddprotect.
+
+Another feature of the driver is misc device called "freefall" that
+acts similar to /dev/rtc and reacts on free-fall interrupts received
+from the device. It supports blocking operations, poll/select and
+fasync operation modes. You must read 1 bytes from the device. The
+result is number of free-fall interrupts since the last successful
+read (or 255 if number of interrupts would not fit). See the hpfall.c
+file for an example on using the device.
+
+
+Axes orientation
+----------------
+
+For better compatibility between the various laptops. The values reported by
+the accelerometer are converted into a "standard" organisation of the axes
+(aka "can play neverball out of the box"):
+ * When the laptop is horizontal the position reported is about 0 for X and Y
+ and a positive value for Z
+ * If the left side is elevated, X increases (becomes positive)
+ * If the front side (where the touchpad is) is elevated, Y decreases
+ (becomes negative)
+ * If the laptop is put upside-down, Z becomes negative
+
+If your laptop model is not recognized (cf "dmesg"), you can send an
+email to the maintainer to add it to the database. When reporting a new
+laptop, please include the output of "dmidecode" plus the value of
+/sys/devices/platform/lis3lv02d/position in these four cases.
+
+Q&A
+---
+
+Q: How do I safely simulate freefall? I have an HP "portable
+workstation" which has about 3.5kg and a plastic case, so letting it
+fall to the ground is out of question...
+
+A: The sensor is pretty sensitive, so your hands can do it. Lift it
+into free space, follow the fall with your hands for like 10
+centimeters. That should be enough to trigger the detection.

+Kernel driver max6875
+=====================
+
+Supported chips:
+ * Maxim MAX6874, MAX6875
+ Prefix: 'max6875'
+ Addresses scanned: None (see below)
+ Datasheet:
+ http://pdfserv.maxim-ic.com/en/ds/MAX6874-MAX6875.pdf
+
+Author: Ben Gardner <bgardner@wabtec.com>
+
+
+Description
+-----------
+
+The Maxim MAX6875 is an EEPROM-programmable power-supply sequencer/supervisor.
+It provides timed outputs that can be used as a watchdog, if properly wired.
+It also provides 512 bytes of user EEPROM.
+
+At reset, the MAX6875 reads the configuration EEPROM into its configuration
+registers. The chip then begins to operate according to the values in the
+registers.
+
+The Maxim MAX6874 is a similar, mostly compatible device, with more intputs
+and outputs:
+ vin gpi vout
+MAX6874 6 4 8
+MAX6875 4 3 5
+
+See the datasheet for more information.
+
+
+Sysfs entries
+-------------
+
+eeprom - 512 bytes of user-defined EEPROM space.
+
+
+General Remarks
+---------------
+
+Valid addresses for the MAX6875 are 0x50 and 0x52.
+Valid addresses for the MAX6874 are 0x50, 0x52, 0x54 and 0x56.
+The driver does not probe any address, so you explicitly instantiate the
+devices.
+
+Example:
+$ modprobe max6875
+$ echo max6875 0x50 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-0/new_device
+
+The MAX6874/MAX6875 ignores address bit 0, so this driver attaches to multiple
+addresses. For example, for address 0x50, it also reserves 0x51.
+The even-address instance is called 'max6875', the odd one is 'dummy'.
+
+
+Programming the chip using i2c-dev
+----------------------------------
+
+Use the i2c-dev interface to access and program the chips.
+Reads and writes are performed differently depending on the address range.
+
+The configuration registers are at addresses 0x00 - 0x45.
+Use i2c_smbus_write_byte_data() to write a register and
+i2c_smbus_read_byte_data() to read a register.
+The command is the register number.
+
+Examples:
+To write a 1 to register 0x45:
+ i2c_smbus_write_byte_data(fd, 0x45, 1);
+
+To read register 0x45:
+ value = i2c_smbus_read_byte_data(fd, 0x45);
+
+
+The configuration EEPROM is at addresses 0x8000 - 0x8045.
+The user EEPROM is at addresses 0x8100 - 0x82ff.
+
+Use i2c_smbus_write_word_data() to write a byte to EEPROM.
+
+The command is the upper byte of the address: 0x80, 0x81, or 0x82.
+The data word is the lower part of the address or'd with data << 8.
+ cmd = address >> 8;
+ val = (address & 0xff) | (data << 8);
+
+Example:
+To write 0x5a to address 0x8003:
+ i2c_smbus_write_word_data(fd, 0x80, 0x5a03);
+
+
+Reading data from the EEPROM is a little more complicated.
+Use i2c_smbus_write_byte_data() to set the read address and then
+i2c_smbus_read_byte() or i2c_smbus_read_i2c_block_data() to read the data.
+
+Example:
+To read data starting at offset 0x8100, first set the address:
+ i2c_smbus_write_byte_data(fd, 0x81, 0x00);
+
+And then read the data
+ value = i2c_smbus_read_byte(fd);
+
+ or
+
+ count = i2c_smbus_read_i2c_block_data(fd, 0x84, 16, buffer);
+
+The block read should read 16 bytes.
+0x84 is the block read command.
+
+See the datasheet for more details.

+Intel(R) Management Engine Interface (Intel(R) MEI)
+=======================
+
+Introduction
+=======================
+
+The Intel Management Engine (Intel ME) is an isolated and protected computing
+resource (Co-processor) residing inside certain Intel chipsets. The Intel ME
+provides support for computer/IT management features. The feature set
+depends on the Intel chipset SKU.
+
+The Intel Management Engine Interface (Intel MEI, previously known as HECI)
+is the interface between the Host and Intel ME. This interface is exposed
+to the host as a PCI device. The Intel MEI Driver is in charge of the
+communication channel between a host application and the Intel ME feature.
+
+Each Intel ME feature (Intel ME Client) is addressed by a GUID/UUID and
+each client has its own protocol. The protocol is message-based with a
+header and payload up to 512 bytes.
+
+Prominent usage of the Intel ME Interface is to communicate with Intel(R)
+Active Management Technology (Intel AMT)implemented in firmware running on
+the Intel ME.
+
+Intel AMT provides the ability to manage a host remotely out-of-band (OOB)
+even when the operating system running on the host processor has crashed or
+is in a sleep state.
+
+Some examples of Intel AMT usage are:
+ - Monitoring hardware state and platform components

+
+Intel MEI Driver
+=======================
+
+The driver exposes a misc device called /dev/mei.
+
+An application maintains communication with an Intel ME feature while
+/dev/mei is open. The binding to a specific feature is performed by calling
+MEI_CONNECT_CLIENT_IOCTL, which passes the desired UUID.
+The number of instances of an Intel ME feature that can be opened
+at the same time depends on the Intel ME feature, but most of the
+features allow only a single instance.
+
+The Intel AMT Host Interface (Intel AMTHI) feature supports multiple
+simultaneous user connected applications. The Intel MEI driver
+handles this internally by maintaining request queues for the applications.
+
+The driver is transparent to data that are passed between firmware feature
+and host application.
+
+Because some of the Intel ME features can change the system
+configuration, the driver by default allows only a privileged
+user to access it.
+
+A code snippet for an application communicating with Intel AMTHI client:
+
+ struct mei_connect_client_data data;
+ fd = open(MEI_DEVICE);
+
+ data.d.in_client_uuid = AMTHI_UUID;
+
+ ioctl(fd, IOCTL_MEI_CONNECT_CLIENT, &data);
+
+ printf("Ver=%d, MaxLen=%ld\n",
+ data.d.in_client_uuid.protocol_version,
+ data.d.in_client_uuid.max_msg_length);
+
+ [...]
+
+ write(fd, amthi_req_data, amthi_req_data_len);
+
+ [...]
+
+ read(fd, &amthi_res_data, amthi_res_data_len);
+
+ [...]
+ close(fd);
+
+IOCTL:
+======
+The Intel MEI Driver supports the following IOCTL command:
+ IOCTL_MEI_CONNECT_CLIENT Connect to firmware Feature (client).
+
+ usage:
+ struct mei_connect_client_data clientData;
+ ioctl(fd, IOCTL_MEI_CONNECT_CLIENT, &clientData);
+
+ inputs:
+ mei_connect_client_data struct contain the following
+ input field:
+
+ in_client_uuid - UUID of the FW Feature that needs
+ to connect to.
+ outputs:
+ out_client_properties - Client Properties: MTU and Protocol Version.
+
+ error returns:
+ EINVAL Wrong IOCTL Number
+ ENODEV Device or Connection is not initialized or ready.
+ (e.g. Wrong UUID)
+ ENOMEM Unable to allocate memory to client internal data.
+ EFAULT Fatal Error (e.g. Unable to access user input data)
+ EBUSY Connection Already Open
+
+ Notes:
+ max_msg_length (MTU) in client properties describes the maximum
+ data that can be sent or received. (e.g. if MTU=2K, can send
+ requests up to bytes 2k and received responses upto 2k bytes).
+
+Intel ME Applications:
+==============
+
+1) Intel Local Management Service (Intel LMS)
+
+ Applications running locally on the platform communicate with Intel AMT Release
+ 2.0 and later releases in the same way that network applications do via SOAP
+ over HTTP (deprecated starting with Release 6.0) or with WS-Management over
+ SOAP over HTTP. This means that some Intel AMT features can be accessed from a
+ local application using the same network interface as a remote application
+ communicating with Intel AMT over the network.
+
+ When a local application sends a message addressed to the local Intel AMT host
+ name, the Intel LMS, which listens for traffic directed to the host name,
+ intercepts the message and routes it to the Intel MEI.
+ For more information:
+ http://software.intel.com/sites/manageability/AMT_Implementation_and_Reference_Guide
+ Under "About Intel AMT" => "Local Access"
+
+ For downloading Intel LMS:
+ http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-intel-amt-open-source-drivers/
+
+ The Intel LMS opens a connection using the Intel MEI driver to the Intel LMS
+ firmware feature using a defined UUID and then communicates with the feature
+ using a protocol called Intel AMT Port Forwarding Protocol(Intel APF protocol).
+ The protocol is used to maintain multiple sessions with Intel AMT from a
+ single application.
+
+ See the protocol specification in the Intel AMT Software Development Kit(SDK)
+ http://software.intel.com/sites/manageability/AMT_Implementation_and_Reference_Guide
+ Under "SDK Resources" => "Intel(R) vPro(TM) Gateway(MPS)"
+ => "Information for Intel(R) vPro(TM) Gateway Developers"
+ => "Description of the Intel AMT Port Forwarding (APF)Protocol"
+
+ 2) Intel AMT Remote configuration using a Local Agent
+ A Local Agent enables IT personnel to configure Intel AMT out-of-the-box
+ without requiring installing additional data to enable setup. The remote
+ configuration process may involve an ISV-developed remote configuration
+ agent that runs on the host.
+ For more information:
+ http://software.intel.com/sites/manageability/AMT_Implementation_and_Reference_Guide
+ Under "Setup and Configuration of Intel AMT" =>
+ "SDK Tools Supporting Setup and Configuration" =>
+ "Using the Local Agent Sample"
+
+ An open source Intel AMT configuration utility, implementing a local agent
+ that accesses the Intel MEI driver, can be found here:
+ http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-intel-amt-open-source-drivers/
+
+
+Intel AMT OS Health Watchdog:
+=============================
+The Intel AMT Watchdog is an OS Health (Hang/Crash) watchdog.
+Whenever the OS hangs or crashes, Intel AMT will send an event
+to any subscriber to this event. This mechanism means that
+IT knows when a platform crashes even when there is a hard failure on the host.
+
+The Intel AMT Watchdog is composed of two parts:
+ 1) Firmware feature - receives the heartbeats
+ and sends an event when the heartbeats stop.
+ 2) Intel MEI driver - connects to the watchdog feature, configures the
+ watchdog and sends the heartbeats.
+
+The Intel MEI driver uses the kernel watchdog API to configure the Intel AMT
+Watchdog and to send heartbeats to it. The default timeout of the
+watchdog is 120 seconds.
+
+If the Intel AMT Watchdog feature does not exist (i.e. the connection failed),
+the Intel MEI driver will disable the sending of heartbeats.

+==========================
+Device Drivers
+ Misc devices
+ PCIe gadget support for SPEAr13XX platform
+purpose
+===========
+This driver has several nodes which can be read/written by configfs interface.
+Its main purpose is to configure selected dual mode PCIe controller as device
+and then program its various registers to configure it as a particular device
+type. This driver can be used to show spear's PCIe device capability.
+
+Description of different nodes:
+=================================
+
+read behavior of nodes:
+------------------------------
+link :gives ltssm status.
+int_type :type of supported interrupt
+no_of_msi :zero if MSI is not enabled by host. A positive value is the
+ number of MSI vector granted.
+vendor_id :returns programmed vendor id (hex)
+device_id :returns programmed device id(hex)
+bar0_size: :returns size of bar0 in hex.
+bar0_address :returns address of bar0 mapped area in hex.
+bar0_rw_offset :returns offset of bar0 for which bar0_data will return value.
+bar0_data :returns data at bar0_rw_offset.
+
+write behavior of nodes:
+------------------------------
+link :write UP to enable ltsmm DOWN to disable
+int_type :write interrupt type to be configured and (int_type could be
+ INTA, MSI or NO_INT). Select MSI only when you have programmed
+ no_of_msi node.
+no_of_msi :number of MSI vector needed.
+inta :write 1 to assert INTA and 0 to de-assert.
+send_msi :write MSI vector to be sent.
+vendor_id :write vendor id(hex) to be programmed.
+device_id :write device id(hex) to be programmed.
+bar0_size :write size of bar0 in hex. default bar0 size is 1000 (hex)
+ bytes.
+bar0_address :write address of bar0 mapped area in hex. (default mapping of
+ bar0 is SYSRAM1(E0800000). Always program bar size before bar
+ address. Kernel might modify bar size and address for alignment, so
+ read back bar size and address after writing to cross check.
+bar0_rw_offset :write offset of bar0 for which bar0_data will write value.
+bar0_data :write data to be written at bar0_rw_offset.
+
+Node programming example
+===========================
+Program all PCIe registers in such a way that when this device is connected
+to the PCIe host, then host sees this device as 1MB RAM.
+#mount -t configfs none /Config
+For nth PCIe Device Controller
+# cd /config/pcie_gadget.n/
+Now you have all the nodes in this directory.
+program vendor id as 0x104a
+# echo 104A >> vendor_id
+
+program device id as 0xCD80
+# echo CD80 >> device_id
+
+program BAR0 size as 1MB
+# echo 100000 >> bar0_size
+
+check for programmed bar0 size
+# cat bar0_size
+
+Program BAR0 Address as DDR (0x2100000). This is the physical address of
+memory, which is to be made visible to PCIe host. Similarly any other peripheral
+can also be made visible to PCIe host. E.g., if you program base address of UART
+as BAR0 address then when this device will be connected to a host, it will be
+visible as UART.
+# echo 2100000 >> bar0_address
+
+program interrupt type : INTA
+# echo INTA >> int_type
+
+go for link up now.
+# echo UP >> link
+
+It will have to be insured that, once link up is done on gadget, then only host
+is initialized and start to search PCIe devices on its port.
+
+/*wait till link is up*/
+# cat link
+wait till it returns UP.
+
+To assert INTA
+# echo 1 >> inta
+
+To de-assert INTA
+# echo 0 >> inta
+
+if MSI is to be used as interrupt, program no of msi vector needed (say4)
+# echo 4 >> no_of_msi
+
+select MSI as interrupt type
+# echo MSI >> int_type
+
+go for link up now
+# echo UP >> link
+
+wait till link is up
+# cat link
+An application can repetitively read this node till link is found UP. It can
+sleep between two read.
+
+wait till msi is enabled
+# cat no_of_msi
+Should return 4 (number of requested MSI vector)
+
+to send msi vector 2
+# echo 2 >> send_msi
+#cd -
