+General Purpose I2C Bus Mux
+
+This binding describes an I2C bus multiplexer that uses a mux controller
+from the mux subsystem to route the I2C signals.

+Required properties:
+- compatible: i2c-mux
+- i2c-parent: The phandle of the I2C bus that this multiplexer's master-side
+  port is connected to.
+- mux-controls: The phandle of the mux controller to use for operating the
+  mux.
+* Standard I2C mux properties. See i2c-mux.txt in this directory.
+* I2C child bus nodes. See i2c-mux.txt in this directory. The sub-bus number
+  is also the mux-controller state described in ../mux/mux-controller.txt
+
+Optional properties:
+- mux-locked: If present, explicitly allow unrelated I2C transactions on the
+  parent I2C adapter at these times:
+   + during setup of the multiplexer
+   + between setup of the multiplexer and the child bus I2C transaction
+   + between the child bus I2C transaction and releasing of the multiplexer
+   + during releasing of the multiplexer
+  However, I2C transactions to devices behind all I2C multiplexers connected
+  to the same parent adapter that this multiplexer is connected to are blocked
+  for the full duration of the complete multiplexed I2C transaction (i.e.
+  including the times covered by the above list).
+  If mux-locked is not present, the multiplexer is assumed to be parent-locked.
+  This means that no unrelated I2C transactions are allowed on the parent I2C
+  adapter for the complete multiplexed I2C transaction.
+  The properties of mux-locked and parent-locked multiplexers are discussed
+  in more detail in Documentation/i2c/i2c-topology.
+
+For each i2c child node, an I2C child bus will be created. They will
+be numbered based on their order in the device tree.
+
+Whenever an access is made to a device on a child bus, the value set
+in the relevant node's reg property will be set as the state in the
+mux controller.
+
+Example:
+	mux: mux-controller {
+		compatible = "gpio-mux";
+		#mux-control-cells = <0>;
+
+		mux-gpios = <&pioA 0 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>,
+			    <&pioA 1 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;
+	};
+
+	i2c-mux {
+		compatible = "i2c-mux";
+		mux-locked;
+		i2c-parent = <&i2c1>;
+
+		mux-controls = <&mux>;
+
+		#address-cells = <1>;
+		#size-cells = <0>;
+
+		i2c@1 {
+			reg = <1>;
+			#address-cells = <1>;
+			#size-cells = <0>;
+
+			ssd1307: oled@3c {
+				compatible = "solomon,ssd1307fb-i2c";
+				reg = <0x3c>;
+				pwms = <&pwm 4 3000>;
+				reset-gpios = <&gpio2 7 1>;
+				reset-active-low;
+			};
+		};
+
+		i2c@3 {
+			reg = <3>;
+			#address-cells = <1>;
+			#size-cells = <0>;
+
+			pca9555: pca9555@20 {
+				compatible = "nxp,pca9555";
+				gpio-controller;
+				#gpio-cells = <2>;
+				reg = <0x20>;
+			};
+		};
+	};
