So uncovering a bit of a dirty secret here, we should probably consider this in the context of the ASPEED snoop function. A driver snuck into the misc tree without an associated bindings document:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/drivers/misc/aspeed-lpc-snoop.c

(it wasn't me, I'm happy to discuss my proposed bindings, please don't shoot the messenger :))

The devicetree node looks something like:

lpc_snoop: lpc-snoop@0 {
compatible = "aspeed,ast2500-lpc-snoop";
reg = <0x0 0x80>;
interrupts = <8>;
status = "disabled";
};

and also has a required "snoop-ports" property with at least one and up to two cells that describe the channels to snoop. Channel values are either 0 or 1. It's feasible that the double-word capture could also be supported as both supported channels have their data captured in different fields of the same register.

Do we go with what's already in the tree in supporting 'snoop-ports' or keep 'monitor-ports' as proposed by Tomer?
