SubjectRE: [PATCH 4/7] dt-bindings: spi: add binding file for NXP FlexSPI driver
Date
Hi Boris,

Currently FlexSPI controller is present in ARM SoC but NXP is coming with PowerPC SoC with same FlexSPI controller.

We are trying to use same binding as defined in this patch-set(tested on ARM64 processors) for PowerPC.
Unfortunately, It is showing issue when driver tries to parse 'fspi_mmap'.

We did some investigation and figured out that for ARM device trees Peripherals nodes inside 'soc' node have absolute addresses. For in general NXP's PowerPC device trees, Peripheral nodes have the relative addresses to the unit-address of the parent 'soc' node.

This creates issue for PowerPC if we follow implementation in this patch-set.

Example of device tree used for upcoming PowerPC SoC with FlexSPI controller.

soc@f8000000 {
ranges = <0x0 0x0 0xf8000000 0x4000000>;
.
fspi0: flexspi@20c0000 {
compatible = "nxp,XXX-fspi";
reg = <0x20c0000 0x10000>, <0xC0000000 0x10000000>;
reg-names = "fspi_base", "fspi_mmap";
.
.
}
}

As we can see, Final address of 'fspi_base' (0xf8000000 + 0x20c0000) falls into the parent 'soc' range(CCSR) but
for 'fspi_mmap', It is outside of 'soc' range(CCSR). It creates issue when driver tries to parse 'fspi_mmap'.

As per definition of ranges, this field can't be used to solve this problem.
Please suggest how to implement the "fspi_mmap"(memory mapping address and length) in case of PowerPC.

Thanks,
Jagdish
