That's the backup supply for for the RTC and batter-backed RAM. In
configurations where a battery is not used it should be connected to
VCC.

How would you model that? I can enable a vbckp regulator at probe, but
what if someone then accurately describes the corresponding pin as being
connected to VCC? I guess we can check if the regulators are identical,
and then just have the driver ignore V_BKUP. Knowing whether there is
a (hopefully charged) battery connected could be useful.

I can't seem to find any other bindings that describe battery supplies,
but I'll add it here.

I'll add that (even if there is no driver support for these yet).

Not used currently, but I'll add it to the binding as well.

That's the pin name, which in this case is identical to the property
name, so I'll drop it here.

Take a look at the sirf binding; vendors use different names for their
timepulse pins and in that case I added the actual pin names (1PPS, TM)
in parenthesis after the description.

Note that I mentioned "timepulse-gpios" in the generic binding with the
intent of trying to enforce a generic name for pins with such a
function (similarly for "enable-gpios", which I guess is already
established).

Thanks,
Johan
