I think I have the correct .gitignore syntax.

What I meant was, where are you generating .dtb.S files that you need
to ignore them?

They are a byproduct of $(call cmd,dtc).

Normally make removes them automatically, but if you abort at just the right time, they can be left around.

If it is objectionable, I can just remove that .gitignore bit.

+  compatible = "octeon,octeon";

There's no model number at all for this board?

I think it should be:

        compatible = "octeon,octeon-3860";

That looks better.

Also, the part before the comma is generally the vendor, so I would
have expected cavium,XXX throughout rather than octeon,XXX.

OK, I will do that instead.

+      device_type = "network";
+      model = "mgmt";
+      reg =<0x10700 0x00100000 0x0 0x100>, /* MIX */
+<0x11800 0xE0000000 0x0 0x300>, /* AGL */
+<0x11800 0xE0000400 0x0 0x400>, /* AGL_SHARED  */
+<0x11800 0xE0002000 0x0 0x8>;   /* AGL_PRT_CTL */
+      unit-number =<0>;

What is this 'unit-number' property for?

The AGL_SHARED register bank is shared among all the octeon-5230-mii
devices.  the 'unit-number' indicates the bit-field index that this
device should use within those registers.

Ok.  'cell-index' is the normal property name for this sort of

Thanks, I will use 'cell-index'.
