+===========================================================================
+Driver for Synopsys DesignWare PCIe traffic generator (also known as xData)
+===========================================================================
+
+Supported chips:
+Synopsys DesignWare PCIe prototype solution
+
+Data sheet:
+Not freely available

+Author:

+
+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver should be used as a host-side (Root Complex) driver and Synopsys
+DesignWare prototype that includes this IP.
+
+The dw-xdata-pcie driver can be used to enable/disable PCIe traffic
+generator in either direction (mutual exclusion) besides allowing the
+PCIe link performance analysis.
+
+The interaction with this driver is done through the module parameter and
+can be changed in runtime. The driver outputs the requested command state
+information to ``/var/log/kern.log`` or dmesg.
+
+Example
+-------
+
+Write TLPs traffic generation - Root Complex to Endpoint direction
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Generate traffic::
+
+        # echo 1 > /sys/class/misc/dw-xdata-pcie.0/write
+
+Get link throughput in MB/s::
+
+        # cat /sys/class/misc/dw-xdata-pcie.0/write
+	204
+
+Stop traffic in any direction::
+
+        # echo 0 > /sys/class/misc/dw-xdata-pcie.0/write
+
+Read TLPs traffic generation - Endpoint to Root Complex direction
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Generate traffic::
+
+        # echo 1 > /sys/class/misc/dw-xdata-pcie.0/read
+
+Get link throughput in MB/s::
+
+        # cat /sys/class/misc/dw-xdata-pcie.0/read
+	199
+
+Stop traffic in any direction::
+
+        # echo 0 > /sys/class/misc/dw-xdata-pcie.0/read
