The Raspberry Pi 3 GPIO expander is controlled by the VC4 firmware over
I2C. The firmware mailbox interface allows the ARM core to control the
GPIO lines.

Still not right. The correct generic node name is "gpio".

Can you make this a child of the firmware node instead?

Hi Rob,

Thanks for reviewing.

I'll fix that.

I guess I can, I'll need to look into it. What is the advantage of that? What 
about the existing raspberrypi,bcm2835-power[1] node in bcm2835-rpi.dtsi? 
Should it move under the firmware node as well?

+Raspberry Pi GPIO expander
+
+The Raspberry Pi 3 GPIO expander is controlled by the VC4 firmware. The
+firmware exposes a mailbox interface that allows the ARM core to control the
+GPIO lines on the expander.
+
+Required properties:
+
+- compatible : Should be "raspberrypi,firmware-gpio"
+- gpio-controller : Marks the device node as a gpio controller
+- #gpio-cells : Should be two.  The first cell is the pin number, and
+  the second cell is used to specify the gpio polarity:
+  0 = active high
+  1 = active low
+- firmware : Reference to the RPi firmware device node
+
+Example:
+
+expgpio: gpio-expander {
+	compatible = "raspberrypi,firmware-gpio";
+	gpio-controller;
+	#gpio-cells = <2>;
+	firmware = <&firmware>;
+};
