DPAA Ethernet Overview
======================
DPAA stands for Data Path Acceleration Architecture and it is a
set of networking acceleration IPs that are available on several
generations of SoCs, both on PowerPC and ARM64.
The Freescale DPAA architecture consists of a series of hardware blocks
that support Ethernet connectivity. The Ethernet driver depends upon the
following drivers in the Linux kernel:
- Peripheral Access Memory Unit (PAMU) (* needed only for PPC platforms)
drivers/iommu/fsl_*
- Frame Manager (FMan)
drivers/net/ethernet/freescale/fman
- Queue Manager (QMan), Buffer Manager (BMan)
drivers/soc/fsl/qbman
A simplified view of the dpaa_eth interfaces mapped to FMan MACs:
dpaa_eth /eth0\ ... /ethN\
driver | | | |
------------- ---- ----------- ---- -------------
-Ports / Tx Rx \ ... / Tx Rx \
FMan | | | |
-MACs | MAC0 | | MACN |

/ \ / \(or memac)
--------- -------------- --- -------------- ---------
FMan, FMan Port, FMan SP, FMan MURAM drivers

FMan = DPAA Frame Manager
QMan = DPAA Queue Manager

QMI = QMan interface in FMan

FMan SP = FMan Storage Profiles
MURAM = Multi-user RAM in FMan
FQ = QMan Frame Queue
