1	* UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter)
2	
3	Required properties:
4	- compatible : one of:
5		- "ns8250"
6		- "ns16450"
7		- "ns16550a"
8		- "ns16550"
9		- "ns16750"
10		- "ns16850"
11		- "nvidia,tegra20-uart"
12		- "nxp,lpc3220-uart"
13		- "ibm,qpace-nwp-serial"
14		- "altr,16550-FIFO32"
15		- "altr,16550-FIFO64"
16		- "altr,16550-FIFO128"
17		- "serial" if the port type is unknown.
18	- reg : offset and length of the register set for the device.
19	- interrupts : should contain uart interrupt.
20	- clock-frequency : the input clock frequency for the UART
21		 or
22	  clocks phandle to refer to the clk used as per Documentation/devicetree
23	  /bindings/clock/clock-bindings.txt
24	
25	Optional properties:
26	- current-speed : the current active speed of the UART.
27	- reg-offset : offset to apply to the mapbase from the start of the registers.
28	- reg-shift : quantity to shift the register offsets by.
29	- reg-io-width : the size (in bytes) of the IO accesses that should be
30	  performed on the device.  There are some systems that require 32-bit
31	  accesses to the UART (e.g. TI davinci).
32	- used-by-rtas : set to indicate that the port is in use by the OpenFirmware
33	  RTAS and should not be registered.
34	- no-loopback-test: set to indicate that the port does not implements loopback
35	  test mode
36	- fifo-size: the fifo size of the UART.
37	- auto-flow-control: one way to enable automatic flow control support. The
38	  driver is allowed to detect support for the capability even without this
39	  property.
40	
41	Example:
42	
43		uart@80230000 {
44			compatible = "ns8250";
45			reg = <0x80230000 0x100>;
46			clock-frequency = <3686400>;
47			interrupts = <10>;
48			reg-shift = <2>;
49		};
