Subject[PATCH] watchdog_dev: Use device tree alias for naming watchdogs
Date
Currently there is no way to easily differentiate multiple
watchdog devices. The watchdogs are named by the order they
are probed.
1st probed watchdog: /dev/watchdog0
2nd probed watchdog: /dev/watchdog1
...

This change uses the alias of the watchdog device node for
the name of the watchdog.
aliases {
watchdog0 = "/...../...."
watchdog3 = "/..../....."
watchdog2 = "/..../....."
...
}

This will translate to...
/dev/watchdog0
/dev/watchdog3
/dev/watchdog2
