Subject[PATCH v3 13/13] docs: Add PECI documentation
Date
Add a brief overview of PECI and PECI wire interface.
The documentation also contains kernel-doc for PECI subsystem internals
and PECI CPU Driver API.

+========
+Overview
+========
+
+The Platform Environment Control Interface (PECI) is a communication
+interface between Intel processor and management controllers
+(e.g. Baseboard Management Controller, BMC).
+PECI provides services that allow the management controller to
+configure, monitor and debug platform by accessing various registers.
+It defines a dedicated command protocol, where the management
+controller is acting as a PECI originator and the processor - as
+a PECI responder.
+PECI can be used in both single processor and multiple-processor based
+systems.
+
+NOTE:
+Intel PECI specification is not released as a dedicated document,
+instead it is a part of External Design Specification (EDS) for given
+Intel CPU. External Design Specifications are usually not publicly
+available.
+
+PECI Wire
+---------
+
+PECI Wire interface uses a single wire for self-clocking and data
+transfer. It does not require any additional control lines - the
+physical layer is a self-clocked one-wire bus signal that begins each
+bit with a driven, rising edge from an idle near zero volts. The
+duration of the signal driven high allows to determine whether the bit
+value is logic '0' or logic '1'. PECI Wire also includes variable data
+rate established with every message.
+
+For PECI Wire, each processor package will utilize unique, fixed
+addresses within a defined range and that address should
+have a fixed relationship with the processor socket ID - if one of the
+processors is removed, it does not affect addresses of remaining
+processors.
