[Xen-devel] [PATCH v5] devicetree, xen: add xen, shared-memory binding

From: Stefano Stabellini <stefanos@xxxxxxxxxx>

Introduce a device tree binding for Xen reserved-memory regions. They
are used to share memory across VMs from the VM config files. (See
static_shm config option.)

+* Xen hypervisor reserved-memory binding
+Expose one or more memory regions as reserved-memory to the guest
+virtual machine. Typically, a region is configured at VM creation time
+to be a shared memory area across multiple virtual machines for
+communication among them.
+For each of these pre-shared memory regions, a range is exposed under
+the /reserved-memory node as a child node. Each range sub-node is named
+xen-shmem@<address> and has the following properties:
+- compatible:
+       compatible = "xen,shared-memory-v1"
+- reg:
+       the base guest physical address and size of the shared memory region
+- xen,offset: (borrower VMs only)
+       64 bit integer offset within the owner virtual machine's shared
+       memory region used for the mapping in the borrower VM.
+- xen,id:
+       a string that identifies the shared memory region as specified in
+       the VM config file
