Ok, got it.

Oops, didn't notice, my fault.

From my point of view it's possible. I've checked docu and on idea
it should be possible cause WP is only affecting watchdog ping time.
Which in case of '00' is very small, around ~5 ms.
Ben also in next message said about get rid of ifdef for FSP2.

And now patch looks like this, What do you think Michael, Ben?
