Right, but I was going for Kryo specific implementation and hence the
binding as such.

That would be helpful, thanks.

Sure, I think it is decided now that kernel first RAS implementation
will be generic.

Ok sure.

Ok will keep this in mind for the next version.

I have some doubts here, Where do I get this info? Will this be
implementation specific?

Our SoCs are based on big.LITTLE arch, so this will be needed.

Thanks,
