* ARM Performance Monitor Units
ARM cores often have a PMU for counting cpu and cache events like cache misses
and hits. The interface to the PMU is part of the ARM ARM. The ARM PMU
representation in the device tree should be done as under:-
Required properties:
- compatible : should be one of
- interrupts : 1 combined interrupt or 1 per core. If the interrupt is a per-cpu
interrupt (PPI) then 1 interrupt should be specified.
Optional properties:
- interrupt-affinity : When using SPIs, specifies a list of phandles to CPU
nodes corresponding directly to the affinity of
the SPIs listed in the interrupts property.
When using a PPI, specifies a list of phandles to CPU
nodes corresponding to the set of CPUs which have
a PMU of this type signalling the PPI listed in the
interrupts property, unless this is already specified
by the PPI interrupt specifier itself (in which case
the interrupt-affinity property shouldn't be present).
This property should be present when there is more than
a single SPI.
- qcom,no-pc-write : Indicates that this PMU doesn't support the 0xc and 0xd
- secure-reg-access : Indicates that the ARMv7 Secure Debug Enable Register
(SDER) is accessible. This will cause the driver to do
any setup required that is only possible in ARMv7 secure
state. If not present the ARMv7 SDER will not be touched,
which means the PMU may fail to operate unless external
code (bootloader or security monitor) has performed the
appropriate initialisation. Note that this property is
not valid for non-ARMv7 CPUs or ARMv7 CPUs booting Linux
in Non-secure state.
