dt: binding: reword PowerPC 8xxx GPIO documentation
re-format and re-word the device tree binding documentation for MPC8xxx and compatibles, reference the common document for interrupt controllers and remove outdated duplicate SoC specific information Cc: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com> Cc: Rob Herring <rob.herring@calxeda.com> Cc: Pawel Moll <Pawel.Moll@arm.com> Cc: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Cc: <devicetree@vger.kernel.org> Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Signed-off-by: Gerhard Sittig <gsi@denx.de> Signed-off-by: Rob Herring <rob.herring@calxeda.com>
