which is maximum 32 bytes long (defined as RPMSG_NAME_SIZE in

Description:
Every rpmsg device is a communication channel with a remote
processor. Channels have a local ("source") rpmsg address,
and remote ("destination") rpmsg address. When an entity
starts listening on one end of a channel, it assigns it with
a unique rpmsg address (a 32 bits integer). This way when
inbound messages arrive to this address, the rpmsg core
dispatches them to the listening entity (a kernel driver).
This sysfs entry contains the src (local) rpmsg address
of this channel. If it contains 0xffffffff, then an address
wasn't assigned (can happen if no driver exists for this
channel).

from any remote rpmsg client; it is not bound to a single
remote entity).
What: /sys/bus/rpmsg/devices/.../announce
Date: June 2011
KernelVersion: 3.3
Contact: Ohad Ben-Cohen <ohad@wizery.com>
Description:
Every rpmsg device is a communication channel with a remote
processor. Channels are identified by a textual name (see
/sys/bus/rpmsg/devices/.../name above) and have a local
("source") rpmsg address, and remote ("destination") rpmsg
address.
A channel is first created when an entity, whether local
or remote, starts listening on it for messages (and is thus
called an rpmsg server).
When that happens, a "name service" announcement is sent
to the other processor, in order to let it know about the
creation of the channel (this way remote clients know they
can start sending messages).
This sysfs entry tells us whether the channel is a local
server channel that is announced (values are either
true or false).

Description:
The /sys/devices/.../power/pm_qos_resume_latency_us attribute
contains the PM QoS resume latency limit for the given device,
which is the maximum allowed time it can take to resume the
device, after it has been suspended at run time, from a resume
request to the moment the device will be ready to process I/O,
in microseconds. If it is equal to 0, however, this means that
the PM QoS resume latency may be arbitrary.

Chapter 19: Inline assembly
In architecture-specific code, you may need to use inline assembly to interface
with CPU or platform functionality. Don't hesitate to do so when necessary.
However, don't use inline assembly gratuitously when C can do the job. You can
and should poke hardware from C when possible.
Consider writing simple helper functions that wrap common bits of inline
assembly, rather than repeatedly writing them with slight variations. Remember
that inline assembly can use C parameters.
Large, non-trivial assembly functions should go in .S files, with corresponding
C prototypes defined in C header files. The C prototypes for assembly
functions should use "asmlinkage".
You may need to mark your asm statement as volatile, to prevent GCC from
removing it if GCC doesn't notice any side effects. You don't always need to
do so, though, and doing so unnecessarily can limit optimization.
When writing a single inline assembly statement containing multiple
instructions, put each instruction on a separate line in a separate quoted
string, and end each string except the last with \n\t to properly indent the
next instruction in the assembly output:
asm ("magic %reg1, #42\n\t"
"more_magic %reg2, %reg3"
: /* outputs */ : /* inputs */ : /* clobbers */);
