+* ARM CPUs binding description
+
+The device tree allows to describe the layout of CPUs in a system through
+the "cpus" node, which in turn contains a number of subnodes (ie "cpu")
+defining properties for every cpu.
+
+Bindings for CPU nodes follow the ePAPR standard, available from:
+
+http://devicetree.org
+
+For the ARM architecture every CPU node must contain the following properties:
+
+- device_type: must be "cpu"
+- reg: property matching the CPU MPIDR[23:0] register bits
+ reg[31:24] bits must be set to 0
+- compatible: should be one of:
+ "arm,arm1020"
+ "arm,arm1020e"
+ "arm,arm1022"
+ "arm,arm1026"
+ "arm,arm720"
+ "arm,arm740"
+ "arm,arm7tdmi"
+ "arm,arm920"
+ "arm,arm922"
+ "arm,arm925"
+ "arm,arm926"
+ "arm,arm940"
+ "arm,arm946"
+ "arm,arm9tdmi"
+ "arm,cortex-a5"
+ "arm,cortex-a7"
+ "arm,cortex-a8"
+ "arm,cortex-a9"
+ "arm,cortex-a15"
+ "arm,arm1136"
+ "arm,arm1156"
+ "arm,arm1176"
+ "arm,arm11mpcore"
+ "faraday,fa526"
+ "intel,sa110"
+ "intel,sa1100"
+ "marvell,feroceon"
+ "marvell,mohawk"
+ "marvell,xsc3"
+ "marvell,xscale"
+
+Example:
+
+ cpus {
+ #size-cells = <0>;
+ #address-cells = <1>;
+
+ CPU0: cpu@0 {
+ device_type = "cpu";
+ compatible = "arm,cortex-a15";
+ reg = <0x0>;
+ };
+
+ CPU1: cpu@1 {
+ device_type = "cpu";
+ compatible = "arm,cortex-a15";
+ reg = <0x1>;
+ };
+
+ CPU2: cpu@100 {
+ device_type = "cpu";
+ compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
+ reg = <0x100>;
+ };
+
+ CPU3: cpu@101 {
+ device_type = "cpu";
+ compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
+ reg = <0x101>;
+ };
+ };
