Hi,

You forgot to copy the watchdog maintainers, I think such a property
should be discussed with them.

Note that I'm still convinced this is not a complete solution, see:

Yes, you are right, There is not a fundamental solution.
However it somewhat avoid this situation at least.

And if without this issue, 
is it correct to register a rtc device as watchdog no matter it is used as watchdog on the board? 
Every time Linux are booted up, watchdog device should be configured to the right one manually.
So the patch are useful, even though it is not for the issue.

What should we do to really resolve this issue?

I still think we need a kernel solution here. I would expect that most
assembled pcf2127 chips are unable to act as a watchdog (i.e. don't have
the RST output connected to something that resets the machine).

So my favoured solution would be a positive property like:

	has-watchdog;

or something similar. In my eyes this is definitely something we want to
specify in the device tree because it is a relevant hardware property.
I consider it a bug to give a watchdog device to userspace that isn't
functional.

Best regards
Uwe

I strongly agree with you! It should be positive property.
However, we couldn't identify which board are using pcf2127 as watchdog,
So we are unable to modify the boards' dts to correct (watchdog or not) in this patchset.

I noticed that only LS series platforms and imx6 have pcf2127 node, as far as I know, the LS platforms don't use it as watchdog,
But I am not sure about imx6

I don't think there is any user upstream and it is recent engouh that we
can probably make that a positive property.

Bruno, is it ok for you? you are the only know user of the feature.

Hi

This seems like an okay solution to me.

I have a patch series on the way with a new product dts[1] that is
using the watchdog
feature in the pcf2127 chip.

I know that the watchdog feature is used by other products with
out-of-tree dts, but I
will make sure to give them a heads up.
