Subject[RFC PATCH] dt-bindings: add a jsonschema binding example
Date
The current DT binding documentation format of freeform text is painful
to write, review, validate and maintain.

This is just an example of what a binding in the schema format looks
like. It's using jsonschema vocabulary in a YAML encoded document. Using
jsonschema gives us access to existing tooling. A YAML encoding gives us
something easy to edit.

This example is just the tip of the iceberg, but it the part most
developers writing bindings will interact with. Backing all this up
are meta-schema (to validate the binding schemas), some DT core schema,
YAML encoded DT output with dtc, and a small number of python scripts to
run validation. The gory details including how to run end-to-end
validation can be found here:

Cc list,
You all review and/or write lots of binding documents. I'd like some feedback
on the format.

Thanks,
Rob

+ A more detailed multi-line description of the binding.

+ Details about the hardware device and any links to datasheets can go here.

+ The end of the description is marked by indentation less than the first line
+ in the description.

+select: false
+ # 'select' is a schema applied to a DT node to determine if this binding
+ # schema should be applied to the node. It is optional and by default the
+ # possible compatible strings are extracted and used to match.
+
+properties:
+ # A dictionary of DT properties for this binding schema
+ compatible:
+ # More complicated schema can use oneOf (XOR), anyOf (OR), or allOf (AND)
+ # to handle different conditions.
+ # In this case, it's needed to handle a variable number of values as there
+ # isn't another way to express a constraint of the last string value.
+ # The boolean schema must be a list of schemas.
+ oneOf:
+ - items:
+ # items is a list of possible values for the property. The number of
+ # values is determined by the number of elements in the list.
+ # Order in lists is significant, order in dicts is not
+ # Must be one of the 1st enums followed by the 2nd enum
+ #
+ # Each element in items should be 'enum' or 'const'
+ - enum:
+ - vendor,soc4-ip
+ - vendor,soc3-ip
+ - vendor,soc2-ip
+ - enum:
+ - vendor,soc1-ip
+ # additionalItems being false is implied
+ # minItems/maxItems equal to 2 is implied
+ - items:
+ # 'const' is just a special case of an enum with a single possible value

+
+ reg-names:
+ # The core schema enforces this is a string array

+ items:

+
+ description: |
+ A variable number of interrupts warrants a description of what conditions
+ affect the number of interrupts. Otherwise, descriptions on standard

+
+ interrupt-names:

+ minItems: 1
+ items:
+ - const: "tx irq"
+ - const: "rx irq"
+
+ # Property names starting with '#' must be quoted
+ '#interrupt-cells':
+ # A simple case where the value must always be '2'.
+ # The core schema handles that this must be a single integer.
+ const: 2
+
+ interrupt-controller: {}
+ # The core checks this is a boolean, so just have to list it here to be
+ # valid for this binding.
+
+ clock-frequency:
+ # The type is set in the core schema. Per device schema only need to set
+ # constraints on the possible values.
+ minimum: 100
+ maximum: 400000
+ # The value that should be used if the property is not present
+ default: 200

+required:
