+ *
+ * @overlay: Pointer to devicetree overlay to relocate and resolve
+ *
+ * Modify (relocate) values of local phandles in @overlay to a range that
+ * does not conflict with the live expanded devicetree. Update references
+ * to the local phandles in @overlay. Update (resolve) phandle references
+ * in @overlay that refer to the live expanded devicetree.
+ *
+ * Phandle values in the live tree are in the range of
+ * 1 .. live_tree_max_phandle(). The range of phandle values in the overlay
+ * also begin with at 1. Adjust the phandle values in the overlay to begin
+ * at live_tree_max_phandle() + 1. Update references to the phandles to
+ * the adjusted phandle values.
+ *
+ * The name of each property in the "__fixups__" node in the overlay matches
+ * the name of a symbol (a label) in the live tree. The values of each
+ * property in the "__fixups__" node is a list of the property values in the
+ * overlay that need to be updated to contain the phandle reference
+ * corresponding to that symbol in the live tree. Update the references in
+ * the overlay with the phandle values in the live tree.
+ *
+ * @overlay must be detached.
*
- * @resolve: Node to resolve
+ * Resolving and applying @overlay to the live expanded devicetree must be
+ * protected by a mechanism to ensure that multiple overlays are processed
+ * in a single threaded manner so that multiple overlays will not relocate
+ * phandles to overlapping ranges. The mechanism to enforce this is not
+ * yet implemented.
*
- * Perform dynamic Device Tree resolution against the live tree
- * to the given node to resolve. This depends on the live tree
- * having a __symbols__ node, and the resolve node the __fixups__ &
- * __local_fixups__ nodes (if needed).
- * The result of the operation is a resolve node that it's contents
- * are fit to be inserted or operate upon the live tree.
- * Returns 0 on success or a negative error value on error.
+ * Return: %0 on success or a negative error value on error.
