Pull Altera Nios II processor support from Ley Foon Tan: "Here is the Linux port for Nios II processor (from Altera) arch/nios2/ tree for v3.19. The patchset has been discussed on the kernel mailing lists since April and has gone through 6 revisions of review. The additional changes since then have been mostly further cleanups and fixes when merged with other trees. The arch code is in arch/nios2 and one asm-generic change (acked by Arnd)" Arnd Bergmann says: "I've reviewed the architecture port in the past and it looks good in its latest version" Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> * tag 'nios2-v3.19-rc1' of git://git.rocketboards.org/linux-socfpga-next: (40 commits) nios2: Make NIOS2_CMDLINE_IGNORE_DTB depend on CMDLINE_BOOL nios2: Add missing NR_CPUS to Kconfig nios2: asm-offsets: Remove unused definition TI_TASK nios2: Remove write-only struct member from nios2_timer nios2: Remove unused extern declaration of shm_align_mask nios2: include linux/type.h in io.h nios2: move include asm-generic/io.h to end of file nios2: remove include asm-generic/iomap.h from io.h nios2: remove unnecessary space before define nios2: fix error handling of irq_of_parse_and_map nios2: Use IS_ENABLED instead of #ifdefs to check config symbols nios2: Build infrastructure Documentation: Add documentation for Nios2 architecture MAINTAINERS: Add nios2 maintainer nios2: ptrace support nios2: Module support nios2: Nios2 registers nios2: Miscellaneous header files nios2: Cpuinfo handling nios2: Time keeping ...

+* Nios II Processor Binding
+This binding specifies what properties available in the device tree
+representation of a Nios II Processor Core.
+Users can use sopc2dts tool for generating device tree sources (dts) from a
+Qsys system. See more detail in: http://www.alterawiki.com/wiki/Sopc2dts
+Required properties:
+- compatible: Compatible property value should be "altr,nios2-1.0".
+- reg: Contains CPU index.
+- interrupt-controller: Specifies that the node is an interrupt controller
+- #interrupt-cells: Specifies the number of cells needed to encode an
+ interrupt source, should be 1.
+- clock-frequency: Contains the clock frequency for CPU, in Hz.
+- dcache-line-size: Contains data cache line size.
+- icache-line-size: Contains instruction line size.
+- dcache-size: Contains data cache size.
+- icache-size: Contains instruction cache size.
+- altr,pid-num-bits: Specifies the number of bits to use to represent the process
+ identifier (PID).
+- altr,tlb-num-ways: Specifies the number of set-associativity ways in the TLB.
+- altr,tlb-num-entries: Specifies the number of entries in the TLB.
+- altr,tlb-ptr-sz: Specifies size of TLB pointer.
+- altr,has-mul: Specifies CPU hardware multipy support, should be 1.
+- altr,has-mmu: Specifies CPU support MMU support, should be 1.
+- altr,has-initda: Specifies CPU support initda instruction, should be 1.
+- altr,reset-addr: Specifies CPU reset address
+- altr,fast-tlb-miss-addr: Specifies CPU fast TLB miss exception address
+- altr,exception-addr: Specifies CPU exception address
+Optional properties:
+- altr,has-div: Specifies CPU hardware divide support
+- altr,implementation: Nios II core implementation, this should be "fast";

+Linux on the Nios II architecture
+This is a port of Linux to Nios II (nios2) processor.
+In order to compile for Nios II, you need a version of GCC with support for the generic
+system call ABI. Please see this link for more information on how compiling and booting
+software for the Nios II platform:
+For reference, please see the following link:
+What is Nios II?
+Nios II is a 32-bit embedded-processor architecture designed specifically for the
+Altera family of FPGAs. In order to support Linux, Nios II needs to be configured
+with MMU and hardware multiplier enabled.
+Nios II ABI
+Please refer to chapter "Application Binary Interface" in Nios II Processor Reference
