+* Linn Products Ethernet Packet Sniffer
+The module allows Ethernet packets to be parsed, matched against
+a user-defined pattern and timestamped. It sits between a 100M
+Ethernet MAC and PHY and is completely passive with respect to
+Ethernet frames.
+Matched packet bytes and timestamp values are returned through a
+FIFO. Timestamps are provided to the module through an externally
+generated Gray-encoded counter.
+
+Required properties:
+- compatible : must be "linn,eth-packet-sniffer"
+- reg : a list of physical address and size pairs corresponding to
+	each entry in 'reg-names'
+- reg-names : must contain:
+		"regs"   : control registers
+		"tx-ram" : TX command string memory
+		"rx-ram" : RX command string memory
+- interrupts : sniffer interrupt specifier
+- clocks : list of clocks corresponding to each entry in 'clock-names'
+- clock-names : must contain:
+		"sys"    : system clock for the peripheral
+		"tstamp" : timestamp counter clock
+- fifo-block-words : number of words in one data FIFO entry
+- tstamp-bits : width in bits of the timestamp counter
+
+Example:
+
+sniffer@1814a000 {
+	compatible = "linn,eth-sniffer";
+	reg = <0x1814a000 0x100>, <0x1814a400 0x400>,
+	      <0x1814a800 0x400>;
+	reg-names = "regs", "tx-ram", "rx-ram";
+	interrupts = <GIC_SHARED 58 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
+	clocks = <&cr_periph SYS_CLK_ENET>,
+		 <&clk_core CLK_AUDIO>;
+	clock-names = "sys", "tstamp";
+	fifo-block-words = <4>;
+	tstamp-bits = <30>;
+};
