ARM: SAMSUNG: Add initial documentation directory and overview
Start Documentation/arm/Samsung and add an initial overview file which whilst is not complete, is better than nothing. Signed-off-by: Ben Dooks <ben-linux@fluff.org>

+ Samsung ARM Linux Overview
+ ==========================
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+ The Samsung range of ARM SoCs spans many similar devices, from the initial
+ ARM9 through to the newest ARM cores. This document shows an overview of
+ the current kernel support, how to use it and where to find the code
+ that supports this.
+
+ The currently supported SoCs are:
+
+ - S3C24XX: See Documentation/arm/Samsung-S3C24XX/Overview.txt for full list
+ - S3C64XX: S3C6400 and S3C6410
+ - S5PC6440
+
+ S5PC100 and S5PC110 support is currently being merged
+
+
+S3C24XX Systems
+---------------
+
+ There is still documentation in Documnetation/arm/Samsung-S3C24XX/ which
+ deals with the architecture and drivers specific to these devices.
+
+ See Documentation/arm/Samsung-S3C24XX/Overview.txt for more information
+ on the implementation details and specific support.
+
+
+Configuration
+-------------
+
+ A number of configurations are supplied, as there is no current way of
+ unifying all the SoCs into one kernel.
+
+ s5p6440_defconfig - S5P6440 specific default configuration
+ s5pc100_defconfig - S5PC100 specific default configuration
+
+
+Layout
+------
+
+ The directory layout is currently being restructured, and consists of
+ several platform directories and then the machine specific directories
+ of the CPUs being built for.
+
+ plat-samsung provides the base for all the implementations, and is the
+ last in the line of include directories that are processed for the build
+ specific information. It contains the base clock, GPIO and device definitions
+ to get the system running.
+
+ plat-s3c is the s3c24xx/s3c64xx platform directory, although it is currently
+ involved in other builds this will be phased out once the relevant code is
+ moved elsewhere.
+
+ plat-s3c24xx is for s3c24xx specific builds, see the S3C24XX docs.
+
+ plat-s3c64xx is for the s3c64xx specific bits, see the S3C24XX docs.
+
+ plat-s5p is for s5p specific builds, more to be added.
