Hi Xingyu,

I am trying to establish some clarity about what to do here.

The trusted firmware review has now been accepted
https://review.trustedfirmware.org/c/TF-A/trusted-firmware-a/+/3405.

I could try to add your mentioned extra operation indexes to the ATF
watchdog, to try to establish a standard ATF smc watchdog interface.
Hypothetically then your linux driver could connect to any of the ATF
watchdogs, apart from the meson indirection layer.
I do not quite understand the meson layer to be honest, would we run
the meson layer on non-amlogic SOCs?

It looks feasible to strip the meson part from your driver so that it
works on more socs, please correct me if I am wrong.

Alternatively we could also add these extra operation indexes to this
linux driver. Unfortunately I would not have a way to test that.

Thanks

Evan
