[PATCH] dt-bindings: Add a RISC-V SBI firmware node

From: Palmer Dabbelt
Date: Mon Nov 20 2017 - 14:50:42 EST

The RISC-V privileged ISA mandates the presence of an SBI, but there's
no reason not to put it in the device tree. This would allow us to
possibly remove the SBI later.

+RISC-V Supervisor Binary Interface (SBI)
+The RISC-V privileged ISA specification mandates the presence of a supervisor
+binary interface that performs some operations which might otherwise require
+particularly complicated instructions. This interface includes
+inter-processor interrupts, TLB flushes, i-cache and TLB shootdowns, a
+console, and power management.
+Required properties:
+- compatible: must contain one of the following
+ * "riscv,sbi" for the SBI defined by the privileged specification of the
+ system.
+firmware {
+ sbi {
+ compatible = "riscv,sbi";
+ };
