NAME

     fdtbus — Flattened Device Tree bus driver

SYNOPSIS

     options FDT

DESCRIPTION

     The fdtbus abstract bus driver is the primary connection and translation layer between
     fdt(4) hardware resources description and FreeBSD native newbus device drivers framework.
     For an embedded system fdtbus represents peripherals typically found on a highly integrated
     chip (system-on-chip).

     The fdtbus 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.
