+This document explains only the device tree data binding. For general
+information about PHY subsystem refer to Documentation/phy.txt
+
+PHY device node
+===============
+
+Required Properties:
+#phy-cells: Number of cells in a PHY specifier; The meaning of all those
+ cells is defined by the binding for the phy node. The PHY
+ provider can use the values in cells to find the appropriate
+ PHY.
+
+For example:
+
+phys: phy {
+ compatible = "xxx";
+ reg = <...>;
+ .
+ .
+ #phy-cells = <1>;
+ .
+ .
+};
+
+That node describes an IP block (PHY provider) that implements 2 different PHYs.
+In order to differentiate between these 2 PHYs, an additonal specifier should be
+given while trying to get a reference to it.
+
+PHY user node
+=============
+
+Required Properties:
+phys : the phandle for the PHY device (used by the PHY subsystem)
+phy-names : the names of the PHY corresponding to the PHYs present in the
+ *phys* phandle
+
+Example 1:
+usb1: usb_otg_ss@xxx {
+ compatible = "xxx";
+ reg = <xxx>;
+ .
+ .
+ phys = <&usb2_phy>, <&usb3_phy>;
+ phy-names = "usb2phy", "usb3phy";
+ .
+ .
+};
+
+This node represents a controller that uses two PHYs, one for usb2 and one for
+usb3.
+
+Example 2:
+usb2: usb_otg_ss@xxx {
+ compatible = "xxx";
+ reg = <xxx>;
+ .
+ .
+ phys = <&phys 1>;
+ phy-names = "usbphy";
+ .
+ .
+};
+
+This node represents a controller that uses one of the PHYs of the PHY provider
+device defined previously. Note that the phy handle has an additional specifier
+"1" to differentiate between the two PHYs.
