+README for arch/mips/gt64120 directory and subdirectories
+Jun Sun, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
+Many MIPS boards share the same system controller (or CPU companian chip),
+such as GT-64120. It is highly desirable to let these boards share
+the same controller code instead of duplicating them.
+This directory is meant to hold all MIPS boards that use GT-64120 or GT-64120A.
+HOW TO ADD A BOARD
+. Create a subdirectory include/asm/gt64120/<board>.
+. Create a file called gt64120_dep.h under that directory.
+. Modify include/asm/gt64120/gt64120.h file to include the new gt64120_dep.h
+ based on config options. The board-dep section is at the end of
+ include/asm/gt64120/gt64120.h file. There you can find all required
+ definitions include/asm/gt64120/<board>/gt64120_dep.h file must supply.
+. Create a subdirectory arch/mips/gt64120/<board> directory to hold
+ board specific routines.
+. The GT-64120 common code is supplied under arch/mips/gt64120/common directory.
+ It includes:
+ 1) arch/mips/gt64120/pci.c -
+ common PCI routine, include the top-level pcibios_init()
+ 2) arch/mips/gt64120/irq.c -
+ common IRQ routine, include the top-level do_IRQ()
+ [This part really belongs to arch/mips/kernel. jsun]
+ 3) arch/mips/gt64120/gt_irq.c -
+ common IRQ routines for GT-64120 chip. Currently it only handles
+ the timer interrupt.
+. Board-specific routines are supplied under arch/mips/gt64120/<board> dir.
+ 1) arch/mips/gt64120/<board>/pci.c - it provides bus fixup routine
+ 2) arch/mips/gt64120/<board>/irq.c - it provides enable/disable irqs
+ and board irq setup routine (irq_setup)
+ 3) arch/mips/gt64120/<board>/int-handler.S -
+ The first-level interrupt dispatching routine.
+ 4) a bunch of other "normal" stuff (setup, prom, dbg_io, reset, etc)
+. Follow other "normal" procedure to modify configuration files, etc.
+. Expand arch/mips/gt64120/gt_irq.c to handle all GT-64120 interrupts.
+ We probably need to introduce GT_IRQ_BASE in board-dep header file,
+ which is used the starting irq_nr for all GT irqs.
+ A function, gt64120_handle_irq(), will be added so that the first-level
+ irq dispatcher will call this function if it detects an interrupt
+ from GT-64120.
+. More support for GT-64120 PCI features (2nd PCI bus, perhaps)
