[PATCH v2 00/11] memory: add Atmel EBI (External Bus Interface) driver

The EBI (External Bus Interface) is used to access external peripherals
(NOR, SRAM, NAND, and other specific devices like ethernet controllers).
Each device is assigned a CS line and an address range and can have its
own configuration (timings, access mode, bus width, ...).
This driver provides a generic DT binding to configure a device according
to its requirements.
For specific device controllers (like the NAND one) the SMC timings
should be configured by the controller driver through the matrix and
smc syscon regmaps.

The first 4 patches introduce 2 syscon devices needed to configure the
EBI bus, patch 5 and 6 adds support for the EBI bus, and the remaining
patches declares the EBI related nodes in sama5d3 dts[i] files.

The converters approach I suggested to Jean-Jacques has been dropped
and only SMC specific timing properties are supported.

Arnd, you've commented the first version of this driver (IIRC, you
focused on the DT binding part), could you give your feedback on this
version (I based the new DT binding on TI's aemif driver).

Changes since v1:
- almost everything :-)
