+* Freescale MPC512x DMA Controller
+
+The DMA controller in the Freescale MPC512x SoC can move blocks of
+memory contents between memory and peripherals or memory to memory.
+
+Refer to the "Generic DMA Controller and DMA request bindings" description
+in the dma.txt file for a more detailled discussion of the binding.  The
+MPC512x DMA engine binding follows the common scheme, but doesn't provide
+support for the optional channels and requests counters (those values are
+derived from the detected hardware features) and has a fixed client
+specifier length of 1 integer cell (the value is the DMA channel, since
+the DMA controller uses a fixed assignment of request lines per channel).
+
+
+DMA controller node properties:
+
+Required properties:
+- compatible:		should be "fsl,mpc5121-dma"
+- reg:			address and size of the DMA controller's register set
+- interrupts:		interrupt spec for the DMA controller
+
+Optional properties:
+- #dma-cells:		must be <1>, describes the number of integer cells
+			needed to specify the 'dmas' property in client nodes,
+			strongly recommended since common client helper code
+			uses this property
+
+Example:
+
+	dma0: dma@14000 {
+		compatible = "fsl,mpc5121-dma";
+		reg = <0x14000 0x1800>;
+		interrupts = <65 0x8>;
+		#dma-cells = <1>;
+	};
+
+
+Client node properties:
+
+Required properties:
+- dmas:			list of DMA specifiers, consisting each of a handle
+			for the DMA controller and integer cells to specify
+			the channel used within the DMA controller
+- dma-names:		list of identifier strings for the DMA specifiers,
+			client device driver code uses these strings to
+			have DMA channels looked up at the controller
+
+Example:
+
+	sdhc@1500 {
+		compatible = "fsl,mpc5121-sdhc";
+		/* ... */
+		dmas = <&dma0 30>;
+		dma-names = "rx-tx";
+	};
