Subject[PATCH 4.9 175/329] watchdog: f71808e_wdt: Fix magic close handling
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Igor Pylypiv <igor.pylypiv@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 7bd3e7b743956afbec30fb525bc3c5e22e3d475c ]

Watchdog close is "expected" when any byte is 'V' not just the last one.
Writing "V" to the device fails because the last byte is the end of string.

$ echo V > /dev/watchdog
f71808e_wdt: Unexpected close, not stopping watchdog!
