3. SoC Platforms with DTS Compliance Requirements

3.1. Overview

SoC platforms or subarchitectures should follow all the rules from SoC Subsystem. This document referenced in MAINTAINERS impose additional requirements listed below.

3.2. Strict DTS DT Schema and dtc Compliance

No changes to the SoC platform Devicetree sources (DTS files) should introduce new make dtbs_check W=1 warnings. Warnings in a new board DTS, which are results of issues in an included DTSI file, are considered existing, not new warnings. The platform maintainers have automation in place which should point out any new warnings.

If a commit introducing new warnings gets accepted somehow, the resulting issues shall be fixed in reasonable time (e.g. within one release) or the commit reverted.
