-The endianness mode of CPU & Device scenarios:
-Index Device Endianness properties
----------------------------------------------------
-1 BE 'big-endian'
-2 LE 'little-endian'
-3 Native 'native-endian'
-
-For one device driver, which will run in different scenarios above

+Devicetree binding for regmap
Optional properties:
-- {big,little,native}-endian: these are boolean properties, if absent
- then the implementation will choose a default based on the device
- being controlled. These properties are for register values and all
- the buffers only. Native endian means that the CPU and device have
- the same endianness.
-Examples:
-Scenario 1 : CPU in LE mode & device in LE mode.
-dev: dev@40031000 {
- compatible = "name";
- reg = <0x40031000 0x1000>;
- ...
-};
+ little-endian,
+ big-endian,
+ native-endian: See common-properties.txt for a definition

-dev: dev@40031000 {
- compatible = "name";
- reg = <0x40031000 0x1000>;
- ...
- big-endian;
-};
+Note:
+Regmap defaults to little-endian register access on MMIO based
+devices, this is by far the most common setting. On CPU
+architectures that typically run big-endian operating systems
+(e.g. PowerPC), registers can be defined as big-endian and must
+be marked that way in the devicetree.
-Scenario 3 : CPU in BE mode & device in BE mode.
-dev: dev@40031000 {
- compatible = "name";
- reg = <0x40031000 0x1000>;
- ...
-};
+On SoCs that can be operated in both big-endian and little-endian
+modes, with a single hardware switch controlling both the endianess
+of the CPU and a byteswap for MMIO registers (e.g. many Broadcom MIPS
+chips), "native-endian" is used to allow using the same device tree
+blob in both cases.
-Scenario 4 : CPU in BE mode & device in LE mode.
+Examples:
+Scenario 1 : a register set in big-endian mode.
dev: dev@40031000 {

+Memory Protection Keys provides a mechanism for enforcing page-based

+x86 Topology
+============
+
+This documents and clarifies the main aspects of x86 topology modelling and
+representation in the kernel. Update/change when doing changes to the
+respective code.
+
+The architecture-agnostic topology definitions are in
+Documentation/cputopology.txt. This file holds x86-specific
+differences/specialities which must not necessarily apply to the generic
+definitions. Thus, the way to read up on Linux topology on x86 is to start
+with the generic one and look at this one in parallel for the x86 specifics.
+
+Needless to say, code should use the generic functions - this file is *only*
+here to *document* the inner workings of x86 topology.
+
+Started by Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> and Borislav Petkov <bp@alien8.de>.
+
+The main aim of the topology facilities is to present adequate interfaces to
+code which needs to know/query/use the structure of the running system wrt
+threads, cores, packages, etc.
+
+The kernel does not care about the concept of physical sockets because a
+socket has no relevance to software. It's an electromechanical component. In
+the past a socket always contained a single package (see below), but with the
+advent of Multi Chip Modules (MCM) a socket can hold more than one package. So
+there might be still references to sockets in the code, but they are of
+historical nature and should be cleaned up.
+
+The topology of a system is described in the units of:
+
+ - packages
+ - cores
+ - threads
+
+* Package:
+
+ Packages contain a number of cores plus shared resources, e.g. DRAM
+ controller, shared caches etc.
+
+ AMD nomenclature for package is 'Node'.
+
+ Package-related topology information in the kernel:
+
+ - cpuinfo_x86.x86_max_cores:
+
+ The number of cores in a package. This information is retrieved via CPUID.
+
+ - cpuinfo_x86.phys_proc_id:
+
+ The physical ID of the package. This information is retrieved via CPUID
+ and deduced from the APIC IDs of the cores in the package.
+
+ - cpuinfo_x86.logical_id:
+
+ The logical ID of the package. As we do not trust BIOSes to enumerate the
+ packages in a consistent way, we introduced the concept of logical package
+ ID so we can sanely calculate the number of maximum possible packages in
+ the system and have the packages enumerated linearly.
+
+ - topology_max_packages():
+
+ The maximum possible number of packages in the system. Helpful for per
+ package facilities to preallocate per package information.
+
+
+* Cores:
+
+ A core consists of 1 or more threads. It does not matter whether the threads
+ are SMT- or CMT-type threads.
+
+ AMDs nomenclature for a CMT core is "Compute Unit". The kernel always uses
+ "core".
+
+ Core-related topology information in the kernel:
+
+ - smp_num_siblings:
+
+ The number of threads in a core. The number of threads in a package can be
+ calculated by:
+
+ threads_per_package = cpuinfo_x86.x86_max_cores * smp_num_siblings
+
+
+* Threads:
+
+ A thread is a single scheduling unit. It's the equivalent to a logical Linux
+ CPU.
+
+ AMDs nomenclature for CMT threads is "Compute Unit Core". The kernel always
+ uses "thread".
+
+ Thread-related topology information in the kernel:
+
+ - topology_core_cpumask():
+
+ The cpumask contains all online threads in the package to which a thread
+ belongs.
+
+ The number of online threads is also printed in /proc/cpuinfo "siblings."
+
+ - topology_sibling_mask():
+
+ The cpumask contains all online threads in the core to which a thread
+ belongs.
+
+ - topology_logical_package_id():
+
+ The logical package ID to which a thread belongs.
+
+ - topology_physical_package_id():
+
+ The physical package ID to which a thread belongs.
+
+ - topology_core_id();
+
+ The ID of the core to which a thread belongs. It is also printed in /proc/cpuinfo
+ "core_id."
+
+
+
+System topology examples
+
+Note:
+
+The alternative Linux CPU enumeration depends on how the BIOS enumerates the
+threads. Many BIOSes enumerate all threads 0 first and then all threads 1.
+That has the "advantage" that the logical Linux CPU numbers of threads 0 stay
+the same whether threads are enabled or not. That's merely an implementation
+detail and has no practical impact.
