Subject: Re: [PATCH] ARM: dts: exynos: add CCI-400 PMU nodes support to
 Exynos542x SoCs

Indeed, many thanks Robin.

Using this, values sound better.

Do you think that I should write a v2 with a better cover letter that shows
how to access this? By the way, I see that you contribute to that driver. I
haven't seen anything about this source=, do you think that it should be
documented somewhere?

Also, 0 and 4 on the interrupts represent GIC_SPI and IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH,
I will do a v2 for this. Don't you think that the doc at
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/arm/cci.txt should use this too?
