Subject[PATCH v3 0/6] Watchdog: introduce ARM SBSA watchdog driver
From: Fu Wei <>

This patchset:
(1)Introduce Documentation/devicetree/bindings/watchdog/sbsa-gwdt.txt
for FDT info of SBSA Generic Watchdog, and give two examples of
adding SBSA Generic Watchdog device node into the dts files:
foundation-v8.dts and amd-seattle-soc.dtsi.

(2)Introduce "pretimeout" into the watchdog framework, and update
Documentation/watchdog/watchdog-kernel-api.txt to introduce:
(1)the new elements in the watchdog_device and watchdog_ops struct;
(2)the new API "watchdog_init_timeouts".

(3)Introduce ARM SBSA watchdog driver:
a.Use linux kernel watchdog framework;
b.Work with FDT on ARM64;
c.Use "pretimeout" in watchdog framework;
d.In first timeout, do panic to save system context;
e.Support getting timeout and pretimeout from parameter and FDT
at the driver init stage.

(4)Parse SBSA Generic Watchdog Structure in GTDT table of ACPI,
and create a platform device with that information.
This platform device can be used by This Watchdog driver.

This patchset has been tested with watchdog daemon
(ACPI/FDT, module/build-in) on the following platforms:
(1)ARM Foundation v8 model
(2)AMD Seattle B0

v3: Delete "export arch_timer_get_rate" patch.
Driver back to use arch_timer_get_cntfrq.
Improve watchdog_init_timeouts function and update relevant documentation.
Improve watchdog_timeout_invalid and watchdog_pretimeout_invalid.
Improve foundation-v8.dts: delete the unnecessary tag of device node.
Remove "ARM64 || COMPILE_TEST" from Kconfig.
Add comments in arch/arm64/kernel/acpi.c
Fix typoes and incorrect comments.

v2: Improve watchdog-kernel-api.txt documentation for pretimeout support.
Export "arch_timer_get_rate" in arm_arch_timer.c.
Add watchdog_init_timeouts API for pretimeout support in framework.
Improve suspend and resume foundation in driver
Improve timeout/pretimeout values init code in driver.
Delete unnecessary items of the sbsa_gwdt struct and #define.
Delete all unnecessary debug info in driver.
Fix 64bit division bug.
Use the arch_timer interface to get watchdog clock rate.
Add MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE for platform device id.
Fix typoes.

v1: The first version upstream patchset to linux mailing list.

Fu Wei (6):
Documentation: add sbsa-gwdt.txt documentation
ARM64: add SBSA Generic Watchdog device node in foundation-v8.dts
ARM64: add SBSA Generic Watchdog device node in amd-seattle-soc.dtsi
Watchdog: introdouce "pretimeout" into framework
Watchdog: introduce ARM SBSA watchdog driver
ACPI: import watchdog info of GTDT into platform device
