Hello,

I think the intention is that this driver talks to a 'standard' arm
smc firmware watchdog call:

https://review.trustedfirmware.org/c/TF-A/trusted-firmware-a/+/3405

Each device could re-implement that ATF driver to talk to the specific hardware,
and could perhaps use a custom SMCWD_FUNC_ID, defined in the dts.

The goal was to provide an ATF patch and linux driver patch that would
be generic. But the above ATF patch
is only for mt8173. Right now it just specifies an interface. It has
less functionality than your meson driver Xingyu.
If it is not suitable, that is fine.

The above ATF patch is deployed on oak, elm, and hana mt8173
chromebook devices, this driver is intended to support those devices.

Evan
