Subject: [PATCH 1/2] dt-bindings: arm-smmu: Add an optional "input-address-size" property
Date: Thu, 10 Oct 2019 20:46:08 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

Some SMMU instances may not connect all input address lines physically
but drive some upper address bits to logical zero, depending on their
SoC designs. Some of them even connect only 39 bits that is not in the
list of IAS/OAS from SMMU internal IDR registers.

Since this can be an SoC design decision, this patch adds an optional
property to specify how many input bits being physically connected.
