Subject: [PATCH V9 net-next 09/12] dt-bindings: ptp: Introduce MII time stamping devices.

This patch add a new binding that allows non-PHY MII time stamping
devices to find their buses.  The new documentation covers both the
generic binding and one upcoming user.

+ZHAW InES PTP time stamping IP core
+
+The IP core needs two different kinds of nodes.  The control node
+lives somewhere in the memory map and specifies the address of the
+control registers.  There can be up to three port handles placed as
+attributes of PHY nodes.  These associate a particular MII bus with a
+port index within the IP core.
+
+Required properties of the control node:
+
+- compatible:		"ines,ptp-ctrl"
+- reg:			physical address and size of the register bank
+
+Required format of the port handle within the PHY node:
+
+- timestamper:		provides control node reference and
+			the port channel within the IP core
+
+Example:
+
+	tstamper: timestamper@...00000 {
+		compatible = "ines,ptp-ctrl";
+		reg = <0x60000000 0x80>;
+	};
+
+	ethernet@...00000 {
+		...
+		mdio {
+			...
+			ethernet-phy@3 {
+				...
+				timestamper = <&tstamper 0>;
+			};
+		};
+	};

+Time stamps from MII bus snooping devices
+
+This binding supports non-PHY devices that snoop the MII bus and
+provide time stamps.  In contrast to PHY time stamping drivers (which
+can simply attach their interface directly to the PHY instance), stand
+alone MII time stamping drivers use this binding to specify the
+connection between the snooping device and a given network interface.
+
+Non-PHY MII time stamping drivers typically talk to the control
+interface over another bus like I2C, SPI, UART, or via a memory mapped
+peripheral.  This controller device is associated with one or more
+time stamping channels, each of which snoops on a MII bus.
+
+The "timestamper" property lives in a phy node and links a time
+stamping channel from the controller device to that phy's MII bus.
+
+Example:
+
+	tstamper: timestamper@...00000 {
+		compatible = "ines,ptp-ctrl";
+		reg = <0x10000000 0x80>;
+	};
+
+	ethernet@...00000 {
+		mdio {
+			ethernet-phy@1 {
+				timestamper = <&tstamper 0>;
+			};
+		};
+	};
+
+	ethernet@...00000 {
+		mdio {
+			ethernet-phy@2 {
+				timestamper = <&tstamper 1>;
+			};
+		};
+	};
+
+In this example, time stamps from the MII bus attached to phy@1 will
+appear on time stamp channel 0 (zero), and those from phy@2 appear on
+channel 1.
