SCC2 parameter RAM is located at offset 0x1D00 inside the CPM dual port RAM.
SPI parameter RAM is located at offset 0x1D80.
When using SCC2 in Ethernet Mode, the parameter RAM size is 0xA4.
When using SCC2 in QMC mode, the parameter RAM size is 0xAC.
Therefore in both case, it overlaps the SPI parameter RAM which shall 
then be relocated.
On MPC860 this can only be done using an additional microcode. 
Therefore, the relocation configuration is managed within 
On MPC866 and MPC885 (at least) no microcode is needed. Therefore, if we 
want to relocate the SPI param, we must handle that outside of micropatch.c
Since the SPI driver already handle dynamic parameter RAM allocation for 
CPM2, I though it was the good place to do it also for CPM1.

Well, the intension was not really to describe any specific aspect of 
hardware, but to provide an easy way to tell the driver that we want 
dynamic reallocation of the parameter RAM.
On CPM2, dynamic allocation of parameter RAM is the only way.
On CPM1:
* The parameter RAM has a default location.
* When the SPI relocation micropatch is applied, the kernel reallocate 
it just after the patch, when loading the patch. This is not good for 
using QMC, because it is within the part of dual port RAM used by the 
QMC, therefore it reduce even more the number of channels that the QMC 
can use.

The bindings for that driver are described in 
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/spi/fsl-spi.txt. But it seems that it 
doesn't describe anything related to those compatibles. The driver has a 
match on "fsl,fsl-spi" only, and for using it with CPM you have to add 
"fsl,cpm1-spi" or "fsl,cpm2-spi" to tell the driver that it is CPM 
(existing code below).

     prop = of_get_property(np, "mode", NULL);
     if (prop && !strcmp(prop, "cpu-qe"))
         pdata->flags = SPI_QE_CPU_MODE;
     else if (prop && !strcmp(prop, "qe"))
         pdata->flags = SPI_CPM_MODE | SPI_QE;
     else if (of_device_is_compatible(np, "fsl,cpm2-spi"))
         pdata->flags = SPI_CPM_MODE | SPI_CPM2;
     else if (of_device_is_compatible(np, "fsl,cpm1-spi"))
         pdata->flags = SPI_CPM_MODE | SPI_CPM1;
