A more detailed multi-line description of the binding.
Details about the hardware device and any links to datasheets can go here.
Literal blocks are marked with the '|' at the beginning. The end is marked by
indentation less than the first line of the literal block. Lines also cannot
begin with a tab character.
select: false
# 'select' is a schema applied to a DT node to determine if this binding
# schema should be applied to the node. It is optional and by default the
# possible compatible strings are extracted and used to match.
# In this case, a 'false' schema will never match.
# A dictionary of DT properties for this binding schema
# More complicated schema can use oneOf (XOR), anyOf (OR), or allOf (AND)
# to handle different conditions.
# In this case, it's needed to handle a variable number of values as there
# isn't another way to express a constraint of the last string value.
# The boolean schema must be a list of schemas.
- items:
# items is a list of possible values for the property. The number of
# values is determined by the number of elements in the list.
# Order in lists is significant, order in dicts is not
# Must be one of the 1st enums followed by the 2nd enum
# Each element in items should be 'enum' or 'const'
- enum:
- vendor,soc4-ip
- vendor,soc3-ip
- vendor,soc2-ip
- enum:
- vendor,soc1-ip
# additionalItems being false is implied
# minItems/maxItems equal to 2 is implied
- items:
# 'const' is just a special case of an enum with a single possible value
- const: vendor,soc1-ip
# The core schema already checks that reg values are numbers, so device
# specific schema don't need to do those checks.
# The description of each element defines the order and implicitly defines
# the number of reg entries.
- description: core registers
- description: aux registers
# minItems/maxItems equal to 2 is implied
# The core schema enforces this (*-names) is a string array
- const: core
- const: aux
# Cases that have only a single entry just need to express that with maxItems
maxItems: 1
description: bus clock. A description is only needed for a single item if
there's something unique to add.
- const: bus
# Either 1 or 2 interrupts can be present
minItems: 1
maxItems: 2
- description: tx or combined interrupt
- description: rx interrupt
A variable number of interrupts warrants a description of what conditions
affect the number of interrupts. Otherwise, descriptions on standard
properties are not necessary.
# minItems must be specified here because the default would be 2
minItems: 1
maxItems: 2
- const: tx irq
- const: rx irq
# Property names starting with '#' must be quoted
# A simple case where the value must always be '2'.
# The core schema handles that this must be a single integer.
const: 2
interrupt-controller: true
# The core checks this is a boolean, so just have to list it here to be
# valid for this binding.
# The type is set in the core schema. Per device schema only need to set
# constraints on the possible values.
minimum: 100
maximum: 400000
# The value that should be used if the property is not present
default: 200
maxItems: 1
description: A connection of the 'foo' gpio line.
# *-supply is always a single phandle, so nothing more to define.
foo-supply: true
# Vendor specific properties
# Vendor specific properties have slightly different schema requirements than
# common properties. They must have at least a type definition and
# 'description'.
description: Vendor specific properties must have a description
# 'allOf' is the json-schema way of subclassing a schema. Here the base
# type schema is referenced and then additional constraints on the values
# are added.
- $ref: /schemas/types.yaml#/definitions/uint32
- enum: [2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
description: Vendor specific properties must have a description. Boolean
properties are one case where the json-schema 'type' keyword can be used
type: boolean
description: Vendor specific properties should reference a type in the
core schema.
- $ref: /schemas/types.yaml#/definitions/string-array
- items:
- enum: [ foo, bar ]
- enum: [ baz, boo ]
description: Vendor specific properties having a standard unit suffix
don't need a type.
enum: [ 100, 200, 300 ]
description: Child nodes are just another property from a json-schema
type: object # DT nodes are json objects
description: Child node properties have all the same schema
type: boolean
- vendor,a-child-node-property
# Describe the relationship between different properties
# 'vendor,bool-property' is only allowed when 'vendor,string-array-property'
# is present
vendor,bool-property: [ vendor,string-array-property ]
# Expressing 2 properties in both orders means all of the set of properties
# must be present or none of them.
vendor,string-array-property: [ vendor,bool-property ]
- compatible
- reg
- interrupts
- interrupt-controller
# if/then schema can be used to handle conditions on a property affecting
# another property. A typical case is a specific 'compatible' value changes the
# constraints on other properties.
# For multiple 'if' schema, group them under an 'allOf'.
# If the conditionals become too unweldy, then it may be better to just split
# the binding into separate schema documents.
const: vendor,soc2-ip
- foo-supply
# Ideally, the schema should have this line otherwise any other properties
# present are allowed. There's a few common properties such as 'status' and
# 'pinctrl-*' which are added automatically by the tooling.
# This can't be used in cases where another schema is referenced
# (i.e. allOf: [{$ref: ...}]).
additionalProperties: false
# Examples are now compiled with dtc and validated against the schemas
# Examples have a default #address-cells and #size-cells value of 1. This can
# be overridden or an appropriate parent bus node should be shown (such as on
# i2c buses).
# Any includes used have to be explicitly included.
