HwSpinlock IP is present only on OMAP4 and other newer SoCs,
which are all device-tree boot only. This patch adds the
DT bindings information for OMAP hwspinlock module.

Signed-off-by: Suman Anna <s-anna at ti.com>
v8: Removed the previous information about hwlock-base-id, and added
    a reference to the base binding document.

+OMAP4+ HwSpinlock Driver
+Required properties:
+- compatible:		Should be "ti,omap4-hwspinlock" for
+			    OMAP44xx, OMAP54xx, AM33xx, AM43xx, DRA7xx SoCs
+- reg:			Contains the hwspinlock module register address space
+			(base address and length)
+- ti,hwmods:		Name of the hwmod associated with the hwspinlock device
+- #hwlock-cells:	Should be 1. The OMAP hwspinlock users will use a
+			0-indexed relative hwlock number as the argument
+			specifier value for requesting a specific hwspinlock
+			within a hwspinlock bank.
+Please look at the generic hwlock binding for usage information for consumers,
