DPAA2 objects and MC question

I'm trying to create baremetal code for using DPAA2 qDMA in LS1088ARDB via Mgmt Complex (MCS). I understand that this MC abstraction (booted by u-boot) is to simplify programming by not bothering with HW registers for us developers. I've read the code in Linux kernel as well as other manuals but there are things I want to clarify:


- Is there an example DPL that I can tinker with? I can't find one in the LSDK folder.
- What is the general flow in opening a portal, assuming it's dynamic and not via DPL?  In using the DPDMA, do I have to go through DPMCP_OPEN for portals and not yet through DPDMAI_OPEN? Both says they both open the portal for a session.

- How do I know if an MC portal (starting at 0x80c000000) is available?
- Does QBMan have an equivalent DPAA2 object that MC can handle? Is it the same as DPIO (saw this in a slide "LOGICAL ABSTRACTION AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT USING THE MANAGEMENT COMPLEX")? There are still lot of register tinkering with QBMan and I thought MC will take care of it?
