pci endpoint function and to bind the endpoint function
with endpoint controller.

+                   CONFIGURING PCI ENDPOINT USING CONFIGFS
+                    Kishon Vijay Abraham I <kishon@ti.com>
+
+The PCI Endpoint Core exposes configfs entry (pci_ep) in order to configure the
+PCI endpoint function and in order to bind the endpoint function
+with the endpoint controller. (For introducing other mechanisms to
+configure the PCI Endpoint Function refer [1]).
+
+*) Mounting configfs
+
+The PCI Endpoint Core layer creates pci_ep directory in the mounted configfs
+directory. configfs can be mounted using the following command.
+
+	mount -t configfs none /sys/kernel/config
+
+*) Directory Structure
+
+The pci_ep configfs has two directories at its root: controllers and
+functions. Every EPC device present in the system will have an entry in
+the *controllers* directory and and every EPF driver present in the system
+will have an entry in the *functions* directory.
+
+/sys/kernel/config/pci_ep/
+	.. controllers/
+	.. functions/
+
+*) Creating EPF Device
+
+Every registered EPF driver will be listed in controllers directory. The
+entries corresponding to EPF driver will be created by the EPF core.
+
+/sys/kernel/config/pci_ep/functions/
+	.. <EPF Driver1>/
+		... <EPF Device 11>/
+		... <EPF Device 21>/
+	.. <EPF Driver2>/
+		... <EPF Device 12>/
+		... <EPF Device 22>/
+
+In order to create a <EPF device> of the type probed by <EPF Driver>, the
+user has to create a directory inside <EPF DriverN>.
+
+Every <EPF device> directory consists of the following entries that can be
+used to configure the standard configuration header of the endpoint function.
+(These entries are created by the framework when any new <EPF Device> is
+created)
+
+	.. <EPF Driver1>/
+		... <EPF Device 11>/
+			... vendorid
+			... deviceid
+			... revid
+			... progif_code
+			... subclass_code
+			... baseclass_code
+			... cache_line_size
+			... subsys_vendor_id
+			... subsys_id
+			... interrupt_pin
+
+*) EPC Device
+
+Every registered EPC device will be listed in controllers directory. The
+entries corresponding to EPC device will be created by the EPC core.
+
+/sys/kernel/config/pci_ep/controllers/
+	.. <EPC Device1>/
+		... <Symlink EPF Device11>/
+		... <Symlink EPF Device12>/
+		... start
+	.. <EPC Device2>/
+		... <Symlink EPF Device21>/
+		... <Symlink EPF Device22>/
+		... start
+
+The <EPC Device> directory will have a list of symbolic links to
+<EPF Device>. These symbolic links should be created by the user to
+represent the functions present in the endpoint device.
+
+The <EPC Device> directory will also have a *start* field. Once
+"1" is written to this field, the endpoint device will be ready to
+establish the link with the host. This is usually done after
+all the EPF devices are created and linked with the EPC device.
