    thunderbolt: Add support for XDomain discovery protocol · d1ff7024
    Mika Westerberg authored
    When two hosts are connected over a Thunderbolt cable, there is a
    protocol they can use to communicate capabilities supported by the host.
    The discovery protocol uses automatically configured control channel
    (ring 0) and is build on top of request/response transactions using
    special XDomain primitives provided by the Thunderbolt base protocol.
    The capabilities consists of a root directory block of basic properties
    used for identification of the host, and then there can be zero or more
    directories each describing a Thunderbolt service and its capabilities.
    Once both sides have discovered what is supported the two hosts can
    setup high-speed DMA paths and transfer data to the other side using
    whatever protocol was agreed based on the properties. The software
    protocol used to communicate which DMA paths to enable is service
    This patch adds support for the XDomain discovery protocol to the
    Thunderbolt bus. We model each remote host connection as a Linux XDomain
    device. For each Thunderbolt service found supported on the XDomain
    device, we create Linux Thunderbolt service device which Thunderbolt
    service drivers can then bind to based on the protocol identification
    information retrieved from the property directory describing the
    This code is based on the work done by Amir Levy and Michael Jamet.
