2013-02-21sun.com documentation fixesChristian Kujau
After I came across a help text for SUNGEM mentioning a broken sun.com URL, I felt like fixing those up, as they are now pointing to oracle.com URLs.

2012-05-19dt/documentation: Fix value format descriptionRoland Stigge
Numeric values in dts files can be specified in decimal and hex (the latter prefixed 0x). The current documentation is updated with this patch to prevent confusion about what is meant with values without "0x" (previously hex, now dec).

2011-02-23x86: Add device tree supportSebastian Andrzej Siewior
This patch adds minimal support for device tree on x86. The device tree blob is passed to the kernel via setup_data which requires at least boot protocol 2.09. Memory size, restricted memory regions, boot arguments are gathered the traditional way so things like cmd_line are just here to let the code compile. The current plan is use the device tree as an extension and to gather information which can not be enumerated and would have to be hardcoded otherwise. This includes things like - which devices are on this I2C/SPI bus? - how are the interrupts wired to IO APIC? - where could my hpet be?

2011-02-14Revert "dt: add documentation of ARM dt boot interface"Grant Likely
This reverts commit 9830fcd6f6a4781d8b46d2b35c13b39f30915c63. The ARM dt support has not been merged yet; this documentation update was premature. Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>

v3: added details to Documentation/arm/Booting Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>
2011-01-31dt: Remove obsolete description of powerpc boot interfaceGrant Likely
32 and 64 bit powerpc support has been merged for a while now, but the booting-without-of.txt document still describes 32 bit as not supporting multiplatform, which is no longer true. This patch fixes the documentation. Also remove references to powerpc-specific details outside of section I in preparation to add details for other architectures. v3: cleaned up a lot more powerpc-isms and updated text to reflect current usage conventions. Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>
2011-01-31dt: Move device tree documentation out of powerpc directoryGrant Likely
The device tree is used by more than just PowerPC. Make the documentation directory available to all. v2: reorganized files while moving to create arch and driver specific directories. Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca> Acked-by: Josh Boyer <jwboyer@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
