KRYO{3,4}XX isn't the only SoC with the RAS extensions. The DT needs to convey the range
of ways this armv8 RAS extensions stuff can be wired up.

The folk who look after the ACPI specs have made a start:
https://static.docs.arm.com/den0085/a/DEN0085_RAS_ACPI_1.0_BETA_1.pdf

(I suspect that isn't the latest version, I'll try and find out)

I'd like the ACPI table and DT to convey the same information so that we don't need to
convert or infer things in the driver. If something is missing, we should get it added!

Please don't make this Kryo specific, otherwise this binding becomes an extra thing we
need to support with a 'v8.2 RAS' driver.

What I'd like is a single 'armv82_ras' edac driver that handles faults and errors reported
by interrupts, and interacts with the arch code's handling of 'external aborts'. This
should work for all platforms using v8.2 RAS and later.

Your SoC picked the system registers as the interface to these component's registers.
The binding would need to specify which index the 'l1-l2' records start at, and how many
there are. The same for the 'l3-scu'. You can't hard code these, they are different on
other platforms.

There is also an MMIO interface which needs a base address, along with the index and
ranges. (which may be different). The same component may use both the system register and
the MMIO interface.

This stuff is likely to vary on big/little systems, so you need a way of describing which
CPUs the settings refer to. This probably isn't something the ACPI tables capture as ACPI
machines are typically homogenous.


Thanks,

James
