Commit 59d3ae9a5bf6 ("ARM: remove Intel iop33x and iop13xx support")
removed support for some old platforms. Given this driver depends on
a now removed platform, just remove the driver.

This is a bit confusing, but it suggests that the watchdog may also work
with ARCH_IOP32X, which is still supported. I don't know anything about
those architectures, but I hesitate to have the driver removed unless
we have confirmation that it won't work with ARCH_IOP32X.
Maybe the dependency needs to be updated instead ?

Thanks,
Guenter

See commit ec2e32ca661e ("watchdog: iop_wdt only builds for
mach-iop13xx") from 2014: the watdog hardware exists on iop32x
but the driver only successfully built on iop13xx, which is now gone.

Adding Russell (who said he still uses iop32x hardware) and Lennert
(who is still listed in the MAINTAINERS file, but previously said he
does not use it any more) to Cc. If neither of them see a reason to
keep the driver, I'd say we can remove it.

It seems unlikely that anyone wants to revive the driver if they have
not done it yet, and if they want to do it later, it is barely harder to revert
the removal than to fix the compile-time problem.

Good point, especially since apparently no one cared for five years.

I haven't worked on ARM-related things for a long time now.  I'll be
happy to hand over maintainership to someone else, or to orphan the
platform(s) entirely.

I don't see a reason (to keep it).

Doesn't mean that there aren't interested parties.  I still have
IOP32x hardware running here in the form of a N2100 (my firewall)
and it seems that I never noticed this option disappearing until
now...

It's not that it was ever there for IOP32x: the driver was introduced in 2007
and was available for IOP32x but failed to compile for it until 2014 when
I sent the patch to disable the driver in all configurations that
failed to build.

Well:

systems/n2100/boot/config-3.11.5+:CONFIG_IOP_WATCHDOG=m
systems/n2100/boot/config-3.12.6+:CONFIG_IOP_WATCHDOG=m
systems/n2100/boot/config-3.9.5+:CONFIG_IOP_WATCHDOG=m

It seems I've been carrying a patch to comment out the troublesome code:

+//     write_wdtsr(IOP13XX_WDTCR_IB_RESET);

in my stable tree since 2015.

Do you have plans to update that kernel to mainline ?
If yes, a patch to make the driver (and I guess everything else that broke
since 3.12) work would be helpful.
