I don't think so. The information about the SoC is got from the PPTT, 
which only describes processors, caches, and physical package 
boundaries. It doesn't include references to on-chip devices.

Having said that (and unrelated to this series), we could add 
/sys/devices/system/soc folder, similar to node folder.

Yes :) The problem is that the PPTT ID structure is open to use how the 
implementer wants, so we can't assume everything/anything implemented 
according to the spec examples. Maybe we could call it type1 or 
something like that for platforms which did use the convention in the 
spec example.

I actually don't really require the vendor attr. And since "vendor" is 
not in the set of standard soc driver attrs, it can just be omitted.

OK, maybe the ones you suggested could be added. I did just want to 
start out with a minimal sets of files, especially since we don't always 
have a direct mapping between soc driver attrs and this PPTT ID structure.

Thanks,
John
