Subject: [patch 0/7] dt: dtb version: add version info to dtb
Date: Wed, 18 Mar 2015 20:29:48 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <550A42AC.8060104@gmail.com> (raw)

Rob,

Can this be added to the next trees to get some test exposure before submitting
to Linus?

There is currently no way to tie a device tree blob (DTB) back to the source
and environment used to create it.  Add this information, including a DTB
version number, which is somewhat analogous to the Linux kernel version number.

The DTB version number is independent of the kernel version number, and is
incremented for each make of one or more DTBs.

The DTB information is placed in node /chosen/dtb-info.  The data for this
node will be automatically generated by the .dtb make system for any .dts
that includes arch/arm/boot/dts/skeleton.dtsi, either directly or indirectly.
This means that architectures other than arm will not receive this feature.
This can be added to other architectures by modifying their skeleton.dtsi.

There are 70 of the 557 arm .dts files that do not include skeleton.dtsi.
Thus the .dtb files created for these systems will not have the
/chosen/dtb-info node:
