+NUMA binding description.
+==============================================================================
+
+==============================================================================
+1 - Introduction
+==============================================================================
+
+Systems employing a Non Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) architecture contain
+collections of hardware resources including processors, memory, and I/O buses,
+that comprise what is commonly known as a NUMA node.
+Processor accesses to memory within the local NUMA node is generally faster
+than processor accesses to memory outside of the local NUMA node.
+DT defines interfaces that allow the platform to convey NUMA node
+topology information to OS.
+
+==============================================================================
+2 - numa-node-id
+==============================================================================
+
+For the purpose of identification, each NUMA node is associated with a unique
+token known as a node id. For the purpose of this binding
+a node id is a 32-bit integer.
+
+A device node is associated with a NUMA node by the presence of a
+numa-node-id property which contains the node id of the device.
+
+Example:
+	/* numa node 0 */
+	numa-node-id = <0>;
+
+	/* numa node 1 */
+	numa-node-id = <1>;
+
+==============================================================================
+3 - distance-map
+==============================================================================
+
+The device tree node distance-map describes the relative
+distance (memory latency) between all numa nodes.
+
+- compatible : Should at least contain "numa-distance-map-v1".
+
+- distance-matrix
+  This property defines a matrix to describe the relative distances
+  between all numa nodes.
+  It is represented as a list of node pairs and their relative distance.
+
+  Note:
+	1. Each entry represents distance from first node to second node.
+	The distances are equal in either direction.
+	2. The distance from a node to self (local distance) is represented
+	with value 10 and all internode distance should be represented with
+	a value greater than 10.
+	3. distance-matrix should have entries in lexicographical ascending
+	order of nodes.
+	4. There must be only one device node distance-map which must reside in the root node.
+
+Example:
+	4 nodes connected in mesh/ring topology as below,
+
+		0_______20______1
+		|               |
+		|               |
+		20             20
+		|               |
+		|               |
+		|_______________|
+		3       20      2
+
+	if relative distance for each hop is 20,
+	then internode distance would be,
+	      0 -> 1 = 20
+	      1 -> 2 = 20
+	      2 -> 3 = 20
+	      3 -> 0 = 20
+	      0 -> 2 = 40
+	      1 -> 3 = 40
+
+     and dt presentation for this distance matrix is,
+
+		distance-map {
+			 compatible = "numa-distance-map-v1";
+			 distance-matrix = <0 0  10>,
+					   <0 1  20>,
+					   <0 2  40>,
+					   <0 3  20>,
+					   <1 0  20>,
+					   <1 1  10>,
+					   <1 2  20>,
+					   <1 3  40>,
+					   <2 0  40>,
+					   <2 1  20>,
+					   <2 2  10>,
+					   <2 3  20>,
+					   <3 0  20>,
+					   <3 1  40>,
+					   <3 2  20>,
+					   <3 3  10>;
+		};
