Broadcom BCM7038-style Level 1 interrupt controller
This block is a first level interrupt controller that is typically connected
directly to one of the HW INT lines on each CPU. Every BCM7xxx set-top chip
since BCM7038 has contained this hardware.
Key elements of the hardware design include:
- 64, 96, 128, or 160 incoming level IRQ lines
- Most onchip peripherals are wired directly to an L1 input
- A separate instance of the register set for each CPU, allowing individual
peripheral IRQs to be routed to any CPU
- Atomic mask/unmask operations
- No polarity/level/edge settings
- No FIFO or priority encoder logic; software is expected to read all
2-5 status words to determine which IRQs are pending
Required properties:
- compatible: should be "brcm,bcm7038-l1-intc"
- reg: specifies the base physical address and size of the registers;
the number of supported IRQs is inferred from the size argument
- interrupt-controller: identifies the node as an interrupt controller
- #interrupt-cells: specifies the number of cells needed to encode an interrupt
source, should be 1.
- interrupt-parent: specifies the phandle to the parent interrupt controller(s)
this one is cascaded from
- interrupts: specifies the interrupt line(s) in the interrupt-parent controller
node; valid values depend on the type of parent interrupt controller
If multiple reg ranges and interrupt-parent entries are present on an SMP
system, the driver will allow IRQ SMP affinity to be set up through the
/proc/irq/ interface. In the simplest possible configuration, only one
reg range and one interrupt-parent is needed.
