Generic Interface (GENI) firmware based Qualcomm Universal Peripheral (QUP)
Wrapper is a programmable module that is composed of multiple Serial
Engines (SE) and can support various Serial Interfaces like UART, SPI,
I2C, I3C, etc. This document provides a high level overview of the GENI
based QUP Wrapper.

+Introduction
+============
+
+Generic Interface (GENI) Serial Engine (SE) Wrapper driver is introduced
+to manage GENI firmware based Qualcomm Universal Peripheral (QUP) Wrapper
+controller. QUP Wrapper is designed to support various serial bus protocols
+like UART, SPI, I2C, I3C, etc.
+
+Hardware description
+====================
+
+GENI based QUP is a highly-flexible and programmable module for supporting
+a wide range of serial interfaces like UART, SPI, I2C, I3C, etc. A single
+QUP module can provide upto 8 Serial Interfaces, using its internal
+Serial Engines. The actual configuration is determined by the target
+platform configuration. The protocol supported by each interface is
+determined by the firmware loaded to the Serial Engine. Each SE consists
+of a DMA Engine and GENI sub modules which enable Serial Engines to
+support FIFO and DMA modes of operation.

+Software description
+====================
+
+GENI SE Wrapper driver is structured into 2 parts:
+
+geni_se_device represents QUP Wrapper controller. This part of the driver
+manages QUP Wrapper information such as hardware version, clock
+performance table that is common to all the internal Serial Engines.
+
+geni_se_rsc represents Serial Engine. This part of the driver manages
+Serial Engine information such as clocks, pinctrl states, containing QUP
+Wrapper. This part of driver also supports operations(eg. initialize the
+concerned Serial Engine, select between FIFO and DMA mode of operation etc.)
+that are common to all the Serial Engines and are independent of Serial
+Interfaces.
