+Date: April 2012
+KernelVersion: 3.4
+Contact: linux-mtd@lists.infradead.org
+Description:
+ This allows the user to examine and adjust the criteria by which
+ mtd returns -EUCLEAN from mtd_read(). If the maximum number of
+ bit errors that were corrected on any single region comprising
+ an ecc step (as reported by the driver) equals or exceeds this
+ value, -EUCLEAN is returned. Otherwise, absent an error, 0 is
+ returned. Higher layers (e.g., UBI) use this return code as an
+ indication that an erase block may be degrading and should be
+ scrutinized as a candidate for being marked as bad.
+
+ The initial value may be specified by the flash device driver.
+ If not, then the default value is ecc_strength.
+
+ The introduction of this feature brings a subtle change to the
+ meaning of the -EUCLEAN return code. Previously, it was
+ interpreted to mean simply "one or more bit errors were
+ corrected". Its new interpretation can be phrased as "a
+ dangerously high number of bit errors were corrected on one or
+ more regions comprising an ecc step". The precise definition of
+ "dangerously high" can be adjusted by the user with
+ bitflip_threshold. Users are discouraged from doing this,
+ however, unless they know what they are doing and have intimate
+ knowledge of the properties of their device. Broadly speaking,
+ bitflip_threshold should be low enough to detect genuine erase
+ block degradation, but high enough to avoid the consequences of
+ a persistent return value of -EUCLEAN on devices where sticky
+ bitflips occur. Note that if bitflip_threshold exceeds
+ ecc_strength, -EUCLEAN is never returned by mtd_read().
+ Conversely, if bitflip_threshold is zero, -EUCLEAN is always
+ returned, absent a hard error.
+
+ This is generally applicable only to NAND flash devices with ECC
+ capability. It is ignored on devices lacking ECC capability;
+ i.e., devices for which ecc_strength is zero.

modelling the hardware overlays, omapdss supports virtual overlays and overlay
managers. These can be used when updating a display with CPU or system DMA.
+omapdss driver support for audio
+--------------------------------
+There exist several display technologies and standards that support audio as
+well. Hence, it is relevant to update the DSS device driver to provide an audio
+interface that may be used by an audio driver or any other driver interested in
+the functionality.
+
+The audio_enable function is intended to prepare the relevant
+IP for playback (e.g., enabling an audio FIFO, taking in/out of reset
+some IP, enabling companion chips, etc). It is intended to be called before
+audio_start. The audio_disable function performs the reverse operation and is
+intended to be called after audio_stop.
+
+While a given DSS device driver may support audio, it is possible that for
+certain configurations audio is not supported (e.g., an HDMI display using a
+VESA video timing). The audio_supported function is intended to query whether
+the current configuration of the display supports audio.
+
+The audio_config function is intended to configure all the relevant audio
+parameters of the display. In order to make the function independent of any
+specific DSS device driver, a struct omap_dss_audio is defined. Its purpose
+is to contain all the required parameters for audio configuration. At the
+moment, such structure contains pointers to IEC-60958 channel status word
+and CEA-861 audio infoframe structures. This should be enough to support
+HDMI and DisplayPort, as both are based on CEA-861 and IEC-60958.
+
+The audio_enable/disable, audio_config and audio_supported functions could be
+implemented as functions that may sleep. Hence, they should not be called
+while holding a spinlock or a readlock.
+
+The audio_start/audio_stop function is intended to effectively start/stop audio
+playback after the configuration has taken place. These functions are designed
+to be used in an atomic context. Hence, audio_start should return quickly and be
+called only after all the needed resources for audio playback (audio FIFOs,
+DMA channels, companion chips, etc) have been enabled to begin data transfers.
+audio_stop is designed to only stop the audio transfers. The resources used
+for playback are released using audio_disable.
+
+The enum omap_dss_audio_state may be used to help the implementations of
+the interface to keep track of the audio state. The initial state is _DISABLED;
+then, the state transitions to _CONFIGURED, and then, when it is ready to
+play audio, to _ENABLED. The state _PLAYING is used when the audio is being
+rendered.

+* Freescale General-Purpose Media Interface (GPMI)
+
+The GPMI nand controller provides an interface to control the
+NAND flash chips. We support only one NAND chip now.
+
+Required properties:
+ - compatible : should be "fsl,<chip>-gpmi-nand"
+ - reg : should contain registers location and length for gpmi and bch.
+ - reg-names: Should contain the reg names "gpmi-nand" and "bch"
+ - interrupts : The first is the DMA interrupt number for GPMI.
+ The second is the BCH interrupt number.
+ - interrupt-names : The interrupt names "gpmi-dma", "bch";
+ - fsl,gpmi-dma-channel : Should contain the dma channel it uses.
+
+The device tree may optionally contain sub-nodes describing partitions of the
+address space. See partition.txt for more detail.
+
+Examples:
+
+gpmi-nand@8000c000 {
+ compatible = "fsl,imx28-gpmi-nand";
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+ #size-cells = <1>;
+ reg = <0x8000c000 2000>, <0x8000a000 2000>;
+ reg-names = "gpmi-nand", "bch";
+ interrupts = <88>, <41>;
+ interrupt-names = "gpmi-dma", "bch";
+ fsl,gpmi-dma-channel = <4>;

+ ...
+ };
