+The QMSS (Queue Manager Sub System) found on Keystone SOCs is one of
+the main hardware sub system which forms the backbone of the Keystone
+multi-core Navigator. QMSS consist of queue managers, packed-data structure
+processors(PDSP), linking RAM, descriptor pools and infrastructure
+Packet DMA.
+The Queue Manager is a hardware module that is responsible for accelerating
+management of the packet queues. Packets are queued/de-queued by writing or
+reading descriptor address to a particular memory mapped location. The PDSPs
+perform QMSS related functions like accumulation, QoS, or event management.
+Linking RAM registers are used to link the descriptors which are stored in
+descriptor RAM. Descriptor RAM is configurable as internal or external memory.
+The QMSS driver manages the PDSP setups, linking RAM regions,
+queue pool management (allocation, push, pop and notify) and descriptor
+pool management.
+knav qmss driver provides a set of APIs to drivers to open/close qmss queues,
+allocate descriptor pools, map the descriptors, push/pop to queues etc. For
+details of the available APIs, please refers to include/linux/soc/ti/knav_qmss.h
