+Broadcom FlexRM Ring Manager
+The Broadcom FlexRM ring manager provides a set of rings which can be
+used to submit work to offload engines. An SoC may have multiple FlexRM
+hardware blocks. There is one device tree entry per FlexRM block. The
+FlexRM driver will create a mailbox-controller instance for given FlexRM
+hardware block where each mailbox channel is a separate FlexRM ring.
+Required properties:
+- compatible:	Should be "brcm,iproc-flexrm-mbox"
+- reg:		Specifies base physical address and size of the FlexRM
+		ring registers
+- msi-parent:	Phandles (and potential Device IDs) to MSI controllers
+		The FlexRM engine will send MSIs (instead of wired
+		interrupts) to CPU. There is one MSI for each FlexRM ring.
+		Refer devicetree/bindings/interrupt-controller/msi.txt
+- #mbox-cells:	Specifies the number of cells needed to encode a mailbox
+		channel. This should be 3.
+		The 1st cell is the mailbox channel number.
+		The 2nd cell contains MSI completion threshold. This is the
+		number of completion messages for which FlexRM will inject
+		one MSI interrupt to CPU.
+		The 3nd cell contains MSI timer value representing time for
+		which FlexRM will wait to accumulate N completion messages
+		where N is the value specified by 2nd cell above. If FlexRM
+		does not get required number of completion messages in time
+		specified by this cell then it will inject one MSI interrupt
+		to CPU provided atleast one completion message is available.
+Optional properties:
+- dma-coherent:	Present if DMA operations made by the FlexRM engine (such
+		as DMA descriptor access, access to buffers pointed by DMA
+		descriptors and read/write pointer updates to DDR) are
+		cache coherent with the CPU.
