This is a continuation of my previous article. To recap: The Linux Device-Tree controls the configuration of your pins: MUX Mode, Direction, Pullup/Pulldown and Slew-Speed. It's Linux solution for dealing with ever-changing ARM hardware configurations. For any pin, whether you want to use its SPI, UART, GPIO or PWM function, chances are you have to change the default configuration....
