Subject: [PATCH v8 00/11] Coresight framework and drivers 

From: Mathieu Poirier <mathieu.poirier@...aro.org>

Coresight is an umbrella of technologies allowing for the debugging of ARM
based SoCs.  It includes solutions for JTAG and HW assisted tracing.  This
patchset is concerned with the latter.

Coresight components are cathegorised as source, link and sinks and are
(usually) discovered using the AMBA bus.

"Sources" generate a compressed stream representing the processor instruction
path based on tracing scenarios as configured by users.  From there the stream
flows through the coresight system (via ATB bus) using links that are connecting
the emanating source to a sink(s).  Sinks serve as endpoints to the coresight
implementation, either storing the compressed stream in a memory buffer or
creating an interface to the outside world where data can be transfered to a
host without fear of filling up the onboard coresight memory buffer.

At typical coresight system would look like this:

While on target configuration of the components is done via the ABP bus,
all trace data are carried out-of-band on the ATB bus.  The CTM provides
a way to aggregate and distribute signals between CoreSight components.

The coresight framework provides a central point to represent, configure and
manage coresight devices on a platform.  This first wave centers on the basic
tracing functionnality, enabling components such ETM/PTM, funnel, replicator, TMC,
TPIU and ETB.  Subsequent submissions will enable more intricate IP blocks such
as STM and CTI.

Generated traces are encoded in a PFTv1.1 format and can be interpreted
using the procedure detailed here [1] or ptm2human [2]. STM abides to the
widely available STPv2 standard.

Bindings for the driver have been sent separately to the devicetree list.
