SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] dt-bindings: clk: Introduce 'protected-clocks' property
Date
Quoting Stephen Boyd (2018-11-05 11:40:10)
> Add a generic clk property for clks which are not intended to be used by
> the OS due to security restrictions put in place by firmware. For
> example, on some Qualcomm firmwares reading or writing certain clk
> registers causes the entire system to reboot, but on other firmwares
> reading and writing those same registers is required to make devices
> like QSPI work. Rather than adding one-off properties each time a new
> set of clks appears to be protected, let's add a generic clk property to
> describe any set of clks that shouldn't be touched by the OS. This way
> we never need to register the clks or use them in certain firmware
> configurations.
