How to enable GPIO function in dts file

Hi Support,


We know the upper layer Linux command to export gpio and then we can echo 0/1 to gpio path. 


However, we would like to make MX6UL_PAD_SNVS_TAMPER1__GPIO5_IO01 to be a GPIO output function.

Should we need to put this define flag to dts file, and would you please advise where should we put it to ?



Because we don't find specific gpio paragraph in dts file, and only see something like below. The  MX6ULL_PAD_SNVS_TAMPER0__GPIO5_IO00 is put to hoggrp and be used by hoggrp for GPIO control. 

We also want to use MX6UL_PAD_SNVS_TAMPER1__GPIO5_IO01 as GPIO control, and not used by hoggrp, but will be used by upper layer control (e.g. echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio18/value).


pinctrl_hog_2: hoggrp-2 {
fsl,pins = <
