Hi All,

The Programmable Real-Time Unit and Industrial Communication Subsystem
(PRU-ICSS or simply PRUSS) on various TI SoCs consists of dual 32-bit
RISC cores (Programmable Real-Time Units, or PRUs) for program execution.

There are 3 foundation component for PRUSS subsystem: the PRUSS platform driver,
the PRUSS INTC driver and the PRUSS remoteproc driver. Two first were already
merged and can be found under:
1) drivers/soc/ti/pruss.c
2) drivers/irqchip/irq-pruss-intc.c

The third one [1] was accepted and applied to andersson/remoteproc.git
(refs/heads/for-next): [2] but is not merged yet.

The programmable nature of the PRUs provide flexibility to implement custom
peripheral interfaces, fast real-time responses, or specialized data handling.
Example of a PRU consumer drivers will be:
  - Software UART over PRUSS
  - PRU-ICSS Ethernet EMAC

In order to make usage of common PRU resources and allow the consumer drivers to
configure the PRU hardware for specific usage the PRU API is introduced.

This patch set depends on not merged (but applied to remoteproc/for-next) PRUSS
remoteproc driver [1][2] and two remoteproc related patches [3] and [4].
