Subject[PATCH v3 4/7] dt-bindings: Add RISC-V misaligned access performance
Date
From: Palmer Dabbelt <palmer@rivosinc.com>

This key allows device trees to specify the performance of misaligned
accesses to main memory regions from each CPU in the system.

+ Identifies the performance of misaligned memory accesses to main memory
+ regions. There are three flavors of unaligned access performance: "emulated"
+ means that misaligned accesses are emulated via software and thus
+ extremely slow, "slow" means that misaligned accesses are supported by
+ hardware but still slower that aligned accesses sequences, and "fast"
+ means that misaligned accesses are as fast or faster than the
+ cooresponding aligned accesses sequences.

# RISC-V requires 'timebase-frequency' in /cpus, so disallow it here
