The ttyvs driver creates virtual tty devices. These devices can
also be created through device tree. This commit document this.

+description: |
+  The ttyvs driver creates a virtual card accessible through node
+  /dev/ttyvs_card. This card can have 0 to 65535 virtual tty devices.
+  The card is modeled as a node with zero or more child nodes each
+  representing a virtual tty device. These devices can be configured
+  to be a loop-back type device or it can be part of a null-modem pair.
+
+  Devices can be created through DT (see examples Ex1/2/3 at the end)
+  or by writing pre-formatted string to card node.
+
+  If the driver is built as loadable module, standard null modem pairs
+  can be created by passing 'init_num_nm_pairs' parameter. Similarly,
+  standard loopback devices can be created by passing 'init_num_lb_devs'
+  parameter. When DT is used and device nodes are defined, all devices
+  created due to module parameters will be deleted first and then
+  devices specified by DT will be created.
+
+  Devices can be deleted only by writing pre-formatted string to card node,
+  irrespective of whether they were created using DT or through string.

+      first all devices created during module loading are deleted, then
+      driver updates itself to support total number of devices as defined
+      by max-num-vs-devs property.
