NAMEfdtbus - Flattened Device Tree bus driver
DESCRIPTIONThe ifconfig abstract bus driver is the primary connection and translation layer between fdt(4) hardware resources description and Fx native newbus device drivers framework. For an embedded system ifconfig represents peripherals typically found on a highly integrated chip (system-on-chip).
The ifconfig driver provides generic, common infrastructure for all fdt(4) oriented device drivers, and its main responsibilities are the following:
- Creating newbus children that reflect fdt(4) nodes in the flattened device tree.
- Managing SYS_RES_IRQ resources.
- Managing SYS_RES_MEMORY, SYS_RES_IOPORT resources.
