Subject[PATCH v5 2/2] dt-bindings: introduce Command DB for QCOM SoCs
From: Mahesh Sivasubramanian <>

Command DB provides information on shared resources like clocks,
regulators etc., probed at boot by the remote subsytem and made
available in shared memory.

Signed-off-by: Mahesh Sivasubramanian <>
Signed-off-by: Lina Iyer <>

Changes in v4:
- Fix unwanted capitalization
- Add reg property

+Command DB
+Command DB is a database that provides a mapping between resource key and the
+resource address for a system resource managed by a remote processor. The data
+is stored in a shared memory region and is loaded by the remote processor.
+Some of the Qualcomm Technologies Inc SoC's have hardware accelerators for
+controlling shared resources. Depending on the board configuration the shared
+resource properties may change. These properties are dynamically probed by the
+remote processor and made available in the shared memory.
+The bindings for Command DB is specified in the reserved-memory section in
+devicetree. The devicetree representation of the command DB driver should be:
+- compatible:
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <string>
+ Definition: Should be "qcom,cmd-db"
+- reg:
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <prop encoded array>
+ Definition: The register address that points to the location of the
+ Command DB in memory. Additionally, specify the address
+ and size of the actual lacation in memory.
+ reserved-memory {
+ [...]
+ qcom,cmd-db@c3f000c {
+ reg = <0x0 0xc3f000c 0x0 0x8>,
+ <0x0 0x85fe0000 0x0 0x20000>;
+ compatible = "qcom,cmd-db";
+ };
+ };
