    SubjectRe: add bcm47xx watchdog driver
    Hi Florian,

    Quoting Florian Fainelli <>:

    > Your driver looks good, could you turn this into a platform device/driver
    > instead ? You declare bcm47xx_wdt_platform_device which is unused and you
    > also declare a MODULE_ALIAS which suggets it is one.
    What's the advantage of using platform device/driver ?
    Not all watchdog driver use it (for example softdog).
    This seems useless in this case because the driver don't have any resource,
    don't care about suspend/resume and add complexity in the code (2 registers in
    module probe, ...).
