Not sure yet if I'll attend the DT workshop or not, but I thought I
could ask my question here because it might be of interest to someone
else who is attending.

What happens when the DT bindings is not documented in Linux but in an
another project because this project was the first to use it.

I had the case here http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/810275/, and I'm
not sure what's the policy when this happens. Should we add a file
under Documentation/devicetree/bindings/... that points to the external
doc file, should we duplicate the DT bindings doc in Linux, or should
we just leave the bindings undocumented in the kernel tree?
