NUMA binding description.
==============================================================================
==============================================================================
1 - Introduction
==============================================================================
Systems employing a Non Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) architecture contain
collections of hardware resources including processors, memory, and I/O buses,
that comprise what is commonly known as a NUMA node.
Processor accesses to memory within the local NUMA node is generally faster
than processor accesses to memory outside of the local NUMA node.
DT defines interfaces that allow the platform to convey NUMA node
topology information to OS.
==============================================================================
2 - numa-node-id
==============================================================================
For the purpose of identification, each NUMA node is associated with a unique
token known as a node id. For the purpose of this binding
a node id is a 32-bit integer.
A device node is associated with a NUMA node by the presence of a
numa-node-id property which contains the node id of the device.
Example:
/* numa node 0 */
numa-node-id = <0>;
/* numa node 1 */
numa-node-id = <1>;
==============================================================================
3 - distance-map
==============================================================================
The optional device tree node distance-map describes the relative
distance (memory latency) between all numa nodes.
- compatible : Should at least contain "numa-distance-map-v1".
- distance-matrix
This property defines a matrix to describe the relative distances
between all numa nodes.
It is represented as a list of node pairs and their relative distance.
Note:
1. Each entry represents distance from first node to second node.
The distances are equal in either direction.
2. The distance from a node to self (local distance) is represented
with value 10 and all internode distance should be represented with
a value greater than 10.
3. distance-matrix should have entries in lexicographical ascending
order of nodes.
4. There must be only one device node distance-map which must
reside in the root node.
5. If the distance-map node is not present, a default
distance-matrix is used.
Example:
4 nodes connected in mesh/ring topology as below,
0_______20______1
| |
| |
20 20
| |
| |
|_______________|
3 20 2
if relative distance for each hop is 20,
then internode distance would be,
0 -> 1 = 20
1 -> 2 = 20
2 -> 3 = 20
3 -> 0 = 20
0 -> 2 = 40
1 -> 3 = 40
and dt presentation for this distance matrix is,
distance-map {
compatible = "numa-distance-map-v1";
distance-matrix = <0 0 10>,
<0 1 20>,
<0 2 40>,
<0 3 20>,
<1 0 20>,
<1 1 10>,
<1 2 20>,
<1 3 40>,
<2 0 40>,
<2 1 20>,
<2 2 10>,
<2 3 20>,
<3 0 20>,
<3 1 40>,
<3 2 20>,
<3 3 10>;
};

4 - Example dts

Dual socket system consists of 2 boards connected through ccn bus and
each board having one socket/soc of 8 cpus, memory and pci bus.
