Add devicetree source files as of Linux-3.15-rc2
This adds the Linux dts files to barebox. The dts files are generated from Ian Campbells device-tree-rebasing.git: git://xenbits.xen.org/people/ianc/device-tree-rebasing.git The dts are found in dts/ in the barebox repository and will be updated from upstream regularly, probably for each upstream -rc. To keep the synchronization with upstream easy no changes to the original files are allowed under dts/. Instead changes to upstream dts files will be done using overlays in arch/$ARCH/dts/.

+Specifying interrupt information for devices
+============================================
+
+1) Interrupt client nodes
+-------------------------
+
+Nodes that describe devices which generate interrupts must contain an either an
+"interrupts" property or an "interrupts-extended" property. These properties
+contain a list of interrupt specifiers, one per output interrupt. The format of
+the interrupt specifier is determined by the interrupt controller to which the
+interrupts are routed; see section 2 below for details.
+
+ Example:
+ interrupt-parent = <&intc1>;
+ interrupts = <5 0>, <6 0>;
+
+The "interrupt-parent" property is used to specify the controller to which
+interrupts are routed and contains a single phandle referring to the interrupt
+controller node. This property is inherited, so it may be specified in an
+interrupt client node or in any of its parent nodes. Interrupts listed in the
+"interrupts" property are always in reference to the node's interrupt parent.
+
+The "interrupts-extended" property is a special form for use when a node needs
+to reference multiple interrupt parents. Each entry in this property contains
+both the parent phandle and the interrupt specifier. "interrupts-extended"
+should only be used when a device has multiple interrupt parents.
+
+ Example:
+ interrupts-extended = <&intc1 5 1>, <&intc2 1 0>;
+
+A device node may contain either "interrupts" or "interrupts-extended", but not
+both. If both properties are present, then the operating system should log an
+error and use only the data in "interrupts".
+
+2) Interrupt controller nodes
+-----------------------------
+
+A device is marked as an interrupt controller with the "interrupt-controller"
+property. This is a empty, boolean property. An additional "#interrupt-cells"
+property defines the number of cells needed to specify a single interrupt.
+
+It is the responsibility of the interrupt controller's binding to define the
+length and format of the interrupt specifier. The following two variants are
+commonly used:
+
+ a) one cell
+ -----------
+ The #interrupt-cells property is set to 1 and the single cell defines the
+ index of the interrupt within the controller.
+
+ Example:
+
+ vic: intc@10140000 {
+ compatible = "arm,versatile-vic";
+ interrupt-controller;
+ #interrupt-cells = <1>;
+ reg = <0x10140000 0x1000>;
+ };
+
+ sic: intc@10003000 {
+ compatible = "arm,versatile-sic";
+ interrupt-controller;
+ #interrupt-cells = <1>;
+ reg = <0x10003000 0x1000>;
+ interrupt-parent = <&vic>;
+ interrupts = <31>; /* Cascaded to vic */
+ };
+
+ b) two cells
+ ------------
+ The #interrupt-cells property is set to 2 and the first cell defines the
+ index of the interrupt within the controller, while the second cell is used
+ to specify any of the following flags:
+ - bits[3:0] trigger type and level flags
+ 1 = low-to-high edge triggered
+ 2 = high-to-low edge triggered
+ 4 = active high level-sensitive
+ 8 = active low level-sensitive
+
+ Example:
+
+ i2c@7000c000 {
+ gpioext: gpio-adnp@41 {
+ compatible = "ad,gpio-adnp";
+ reg = <0x41>;
+
+ interrupt-parent = <&gpio>;
+ interrupts = <160 1>;
+
+ gpio-controller;
+ #gpio-cells = <1>;
+
+ interrupt-controller;
+ #interrupt-cells = <2>;
+
+ nr-gpios = <64>;
+ };
+
+ sx8634@2b {
+ compatible = "smtc,sx8634";
+ reg = <0x2b>;
+
+ interrupt-parent = <&gpioext>;
+ interrupts = <3 0x8>;
+
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+
+ threshold = <0x40>;
+ sensitivity = <7>;
+ };
+ };
