Subject[RFC PATCH v2 4/5] dt-bindings: interrupt-controller: realtek,rtl-intc: map output lines
Date
Amend the binding to also require a list of parent interrupts, and an
optional mask to specify which parent is mapped to which output.

Without this information, any driver would have to make an assumption on
which parent interrupt is connected to which output.

Additionally, extend (or add) the relevant descriptions to more clearly
describe the inputs and outputs of this router.

Since it does not properly describe the hardware, I would still really
rather get rid of "interrupt-map", even though that would mean breaking
ABI for this binding. As we've argued before [1], that is our prefered
solution, and would enable us to not carry more (hacky) code because of
a mistake with the initial submission.

Vendors don't ship independent DT blobs for devices with this hardware,
so the independent devicetree/kernel upgrades issue is really rather
theoretical here. Realtek isn't driving the development of the bindings
and associated drivers for this platform. They have their SDK and seem
to care very little about proper kernel integration.

Furthermore, there are currently no device descriptions in the kernel
using this binding. There are in OpenWrt, but OpenWrt firmware images
for this platform always contain both the kernel and the appended DTB,
so there's also no breakage to worry about.

Differences with v1:
- Don't drop the "interrupt-map" property
- Add the "realtek,output-valid-mask" property
