Re: [PATCH 4.19.y-cip 05/12] arm64: dts: renesas: r8a774b1: Add all MSIOF nodes

Hi!

commit c88657c4a1ead900cf59d87511d7deee41ed92a5 upstream.

Add the device nodes for all MSIOF SPI controllers on the RZ/G2N SoC
(a.k.a. r8a774b1).
I googled a bit, and MSIOF SPI seems to be "slave" controller on SPI. But I still
don't know what "MSIOF" stands for, if anything.
"MSIOF" stands for clock-synchronized serial interface with FIFO, this interface supports IIS and
SPI serial formats (master and slave mode). ATM only SPI master mode is supported in mainline
Kernel.
Ok, I can imagine that. But is "MSIOF" an acronym, and if so, what
does it stand for?

Best regards,
Pavel
