Commit 0e735eaae165 ("rtc: pcf2127: add watchdog feature support")
adds watchdog feature for pcf2127, then it will be registered as
a watchdog device even though it is not used as watchdog.
Pcf2127 always be registered as watchdog0(default watchdog device),
even though it is not used as watchdog, meanwhile there is another
real watchdog device registered as watchdog1.
So add "no-watchdog" property, if the node has this property,
driver will not register it as a watchdog device

Hi,

You forgot to copy the watchdog maintainers, I think such a property
should be discussed with them.

Note that I'm still convinced this is not a complete solution, see:

Yes, you are right, There is not a fundamental solution.
However it somewhat avoid this situation at least.

And if without this issue, 
is it correct to register a rtc device as watchdog no matter it is used as watchdog on the board? 
Every time Linux are booted up, watchdog device should be configured to the right one manually.
So the patch are useful, even though it is not for the issue.

What should we do to really resolve this issue?

Qiang Zhao

I still think we need a kernel solution here. I would expect that most
assembled pcf2127 chips are unable to act as a watchdog (i.e. don't have
the RST output connected to something that resets the machine).

So my favoured solution would be a positive property like:

	has-watchdog;

or something similar. In my eyes this is definitely something we want to
specify in the device tree because it is a relevant hardware property.
I consider it a bug to give a watchdog device to userspace that isn't
functional.

Best regards
Uwe

I strongly agree with you! It should be positive property.
However, we couldn't identify which board are using pcf2127 as watchdog,
So we are unable to modify the boards' dts to correct (watchdog or not) in this patchset.

I noticed that only LS series platforms and imx6 have pcf2127 node, as far as I know, the LS platforms don't use it as watchdog,
But I am not sure about imx6

I don't think there is any user upstream and it is recent engouh that we
can probably make that a positive property.

Bruno, is it ok for you? you are the only know user of the feature.

Hello,

now that there are two people stumbling over the pcf2127 driver
providing a non-functional watchdog device, here comes an RFC patch to
address this.

Note this is only compile tested and dt-documentation is still missing.
Still send this series because the cleanup is nice independent of this
discussion and to have something to argue about.

Does someone can offer a better name than "has-watchdog", is there a
scheme that could be used already that I'm not aware of?

Best regards
Uwe

The obvious advantages are:

 - The linker can drop the watchdog functions if CONFIG_WATCHDOG is off.
 - All watchdog stuff grouped together with only a single function call
   left in generic code.
 - Watchdog register is only read when it is actually used.
 - Less #ifdefery

Most boards using the pcf2127 chip (in my bubble) don't make use of the
watchdog functionality and the respective output is not connected. The
effect on such a board is that there is a watchdog device provided that
doesn't work.

So only register the watchdog if the device tree has a "has-watchdog"
property.

Hi

This seems like an okay solution to me.

I have a patch series on the way with a new product dts[1] that is
using the watchdog
feature in the pcf2127 chip.

I know that the watchdog feature is used by other products with
out-of-tree dts, but I
will make sure to give them a heads up.

The code refactoring seems like a good idea Uwe, but the new
pcf2127_watchdog_init() is not a void function. If the return
value is not handled, it will change driver behavior. Correct
handling should look like this:

ret = pcf2127_watchdog_init(dev, pcf2127);
if (ret)
        return ret;

I don't think the compiler can remove the function if
CONFIG_WATCHDOG is disabled due to the device tree
value check. Maybe it can if split into 2 conditions.

if (!IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_WATCHDOG))
        return 0;
if (!device_property_read_bool(dev, "has-watchdog"))
        return 0;

If the first part of the expression is always false, the second
part should not even be evaluated. Either case, the code now
hard depends on the compiler optimizing the code away.
It calls devm_watchdog_register_device() which doesn't exist
if CONFIG_WATCHDOG is not enabled. I didn't know that this is safe,
and I would personally not want to rely on it, but we live and
learn.

This is wrong. For || the second expression isn't evaluated if the first
evaluates to true (and the whole expression becomes true). This is the
intended behaviour: If CONFIG_WATCHDOG is off, we don't need to check
for the dt property and just skip the watchdog part.

AFAICT this is save and used in other places in the kernel, too.  This
is one of the reasons why you cannot compile the kernel with -O0.

Sorry, I meant to say "If the first part of the expression is always true".

The whole point would be to get the DT and the watchdog maintainers
agree on the property name. Once done, the driver implementation is
trivial and will get applied.
