Subject: [PATCH v2 0/5] Expose RPi4's bootloader configuration

Soon to be released versions of RPi4's firmware will take of care
passing their bootloader's configuration[1] to the OS by copying it into
memory and creating a reserved memory node in the board's DT. By
modeling this reserved memory node as an nvmem device using
'nvmem-rmem', which this series introduces, user-space applications will
be able to query this information through nvmem's sysfs interface.

An alternative approach, less nice IMO, would be to create a
platform-specific 'soc' driver.

Regards,
Nicolas

Changes since v1:
 - Avoid the reserved-memory indirection by integrating the nvmem driver
   into the reserved memory node.

Nicolas Saenz Julienne (5):
  dt-bindings: nvmem: Add bindings for rmem driver
  nvmem: Add driver to expose reserved memory as nvmem
  ARM: dts: bcm2711: Add reserved memory template to hold firmware
    configuration
  arm64: defconfig: Enable nvmem's rmem driver
  ARM: multi_v7_defconfig: Enable nvmem's rmem driver
