PRUs to offload processing of raw data

The idea is to be able to access on-board peripherals like the McSPI, McASP etc from the PRUs and to be able to use fetch data directly from these peripherals. This will allow to offload processing of the Raw data onto the PRUs. The project will basically involve developing C libraries for the PRUs to connect to these peripherals, developing DT overlays for the peripherals to be used and developing Drivers to reserver the device on behalf of the PRUs.

Status

This project is currently just a proposal.


Proposal

I cross-complied "Hello world" application and generated a pull request as per requirement. Apart from this to prove my ability I made programs on DToverlay for LED on off using switch, simple Loadable Kernel Module (LKM) and LED blinking using PRU. I have successfully tested code onBeagleBone Black. Currently I am learning more advance concept which can help me in this project.
