+Common Domains Controller bindings properties
+Bus domains controllers allow to divided system on chip into multiple domains
+that can be used to select by who hardware blocks could be accessed.
+A domain could be a cluster of CPUs (or coprocessors), a range of addresses or
+a group of hardware blocks.
+This device tree bindings can be used to bind bus domain consumer devices with
+their bus domains provided by bus domains controllers. A bus domain provider
+can be represented by any node in the device tree and can provide one or more
+bus domains. A consumer node can refer to the provider by a phandle and a set
+of phandle arguments of length specified by the #domainctrl-cells property in
+the bus domain provider node.
+==Bus domain provider==
+Required properties:
+- #domainctrl-cells	: Number of cells in a bus domain specifier;
+			  Can be any value as specified by device tree binding
+			  documentation of a particular provider.
+==Bus domain consumer==
+Required properties:
+- domainsctrl-X		: A list of bus domain specifiers, as defined by
+			  bindings of the bus domain controller that is the
+			  bus domain provider.
+Optional properties:
+- domainsctrl-names	: A list of bus domain name string sorted in the same
+			  order as the domainsctrl-X proprerties. Consumer
+			  drivers will use domainsctrl-names to match bus
+			  domains with bus domains specifiers.
+			  Note that "default" and "unbind" are reserved names
+			  used by the framework.
+Example of usage with:
+- a domains controller with a 2 parameters cell
+- a domains controller with a 3 parameters cell
+- a client device node using the both controllers and 2 configurations
+  named "default" and "unbind"
+ctrl0: ctrl@0 {
+	#domainctrl-cells = <2>;
+ctrl1: ctrl@1 {
+	#domainctrl-cells = <3>;
+foo@0 {
+	domains-names = "default", "unbind";
+	domainctrl-0 = <&ctrl0 1 2>, <&ctrl1 3 4 5>;
+	domainctrl-1 = <&ctrl0 6 7>, <&ctrl1 8 9 0>;
