regmap: Add the DT binding documentation for endianness
Device-Tree binding for device endianness Index Device Endianness properties --------------------------------------------------- 1 BE 'big-endian' 2 LE 'little-endian' For one device driver, which will run in different scenarios above on different SoCs using the devicetree, we need one way to simplify this.

+Device-Tree binding for regmap
+
+The endianness mode of CPU & Device scenarios:
+Index Device Endianness properties
+---------------------------------------------------
+1 BE 'big-endian'
+2 LE 'little-endian'
+
+For one device driver, which will run in different scenarios above
+on different SoCs using the devicetree, we need one way to simplify
+this.
+
+Required properties:
+- {big,little}-endian: these are boolean properties, if absent
+ meaning that the CPU and the Device are in the same endianness mode,
+ these properties are for register values and all the buffers only.
+
+Examples:
+Scenario 1 : CPU in LE mode & device in LE mode.
+dev: dev@40031000 {
+ compatible = "name";
+ reg = <0x40031000 0x1000>;
+ ...
+};
+
+Scenario 2 : CPU in LE mode & device in BE mode.
+dev: dev@40031000 {
+ compatible = "name";
+ reg = <0x40031000 0x1000>;
+ ...
+ big-endian;
+};
+
+Scenario 3 : CPU in BE mode & device in BE mode.
+dev: dev@40031000 {
+ compatible = "name";
+ reg = <0x40031000 0x1000>;
+ ...
+};
+
+Scenario 4 : CPU in BE mode & device in LE mode.
+dev: dev@40031000 {
+ compatible = "name";
+ reg = <0x40031000 0x1000>;
+ ...
+ little-endian;
+};
