This file describes the format of the register map based on XML.

Root
----
As any XML document, the content of the file should be enclosed in a "xml" tag.

Example:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!-- desc -->
</xml>

Element: soc
------------
The XML can contain one or more SoC description. Each description is enclosed in
a "soc" tag. The following properties are defined:
- "name" (mandatory,string): the mnemonic of the SoC.
- "desc" (optional,string): a textual description of the SoC.

Example:
<soc name="stmp3700" desc="STMP3700">
<!-- soc desc -->
</soc>

Element: soc.dev
----------------
Each SoC can contain any number of devices. Each device is enclosed in a "dev"
tag. A device is logical group of registers and doesn't have a precise meaning.
If a SoC has several copies of the same device at different addresses (SSP1, SSP2
for example), then only one copy has to be described since a device can have
several address (see soc.dev.addr section). The following properties are defined:
- "name" (mandatory,string): the mnemonic of the device.
- "long_name" (optional,string): a short description of the device.
- "desc" (optional,string): a long description of the SoC.
- "version" (optional,string): version of the register description for this device.

Example:
<dev name="APBH" long_name="APHB DMA" desc="AHB-to-APBH Bridge with DMA" version="3.2.0">
<!-- dev desc>
</dev>

Element: soc.dev.addr
---------------------
Each device can have one or more addresses associated with it. Each address is
enclosed in a "addr" tag. This allows to describe several blocks are once on SoCs
where several copies of the same block exist at different addresses.
The following properties are defined:
- "name" (mandatory,string): unique name of this instance of the device.
- "addr" (mandatory,integer): base address of this instance of the device.

Example:
<addr name="SSP1" addr="0x80010000" />
<addr name="SSP2" addr="0x80034000" />

Element: soc.dev.reg
--------------------
Each device can contain any number of registers. Each register is enclosed in a
"reg" tag. If a SoC has several copies of the same register at different addresses
(INTERRUPT0, INTERRUPT1 for example), then only one copy has to be described since
a register can have several address (see soc.dev.reg.addr section).
The following properties are defined:
- "name" (mandatory,string): the mnemonic of the register.
- "sct" (optional,"yes" or "no"): STMP specific attribute to specify the existence
  of the SCT variants of this register.

Example:
<reg name="TIMCTRLn" sct="yes">
<!-- reg desc -->
</reg>

Element: soc.dev.reg.addr
-------------------------
Each device can have one or more addresses associated with it. Each address
is enclosed in a "addr" tag. This allows to describe several register at once on
SoCs where a similar register is replicated several times.
The following properties are defined:
- "name" (mandatory,string): unique name of this instance of the register.
- "addr" (mandatory,integer): base address of this instance of the register.

Example:
<addr name="TIMCTRL0" addr="0x20" />
<addr name="TIMCTRL1" addr="0x40" />
<addr name="TIMCTRL2" addr="0x60" />

Element: soc.dev.reg.formula
----------------------------
In the special case where the addresses of the register follow a pattern, an
explicit formula can be described as part of the format. There is no specific
requirement on the formula except that the register addresses be indexed by
a variable "n" which range from 0 to N-1 where N is the number of address.
The following properties are defined:
- "string" (mandatory,string): the equation describing the addresses.

Example:
<formula string="0x20+n*0x20"/>

Element: soc.dev.reg.field
--------------------------
Each register can be further divided into disjoints fields. Each field
is enclosed in a "field" tag. A field is defined as a contiguous set
of bits in the register. The following properties are defined:
- "name" (mandatory,string): the mnemonic of field
- "bitrange" (mandatory,string): the bit range of the field written as
  "n-m" where n and m are integers giving the most (resp. least) significant
  bit of the field.

Example:
<field name="PRESCALE" bitrange="5:4">
<!-- field desc -->
</field>

Element: soc.dev.reg.field.value
--------------------------------
Each field can describe a list of named values in cases where this is appropriate.
Each value is enclosed in a "value" tag. The following properties are defined:
- "name" (mandatory,string): the mnemonic of the value.
- "value" (mandatory,integer): the associated value.

Example:
<value name="DIV_BY_1" value="0x0" />
<value name="DIV_BY_2" value="0x1" />
