SubjectRe: add bcm47xx watchdog driver
Hi Florian,

Quoting Florian Fainelli <>:

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, ...).
