Alexander Graf - June 19, 2012, 7:15 p.m.
Phandle references work by having 2 pieces:

  - a "phandle" 1-cell property in the device tree node
  - a reference to the same value in a property we want to point
    to the other node

To generate the 1-cell property, we need an allocation mechanism that
gives us a unique number space. This patch adds an allocator for these
properties.
