I really don't like this; it depends on assumptions how the watchdog
core works, and it misuses WDOG_HW_RUNNING to indicate that the clock
is stopped (or that the driver is in suspend mode).

If ping doesn't work with the clock stopped, I think it would be much
better to have a flag indicating that the clock is stopped, and have
the ping function do nothing if it is called with stopped clock
(ie if suspended).

Since watchdog_ping_work is not freezable so that it maybe scheduled before
imx2_wdt_resume where watchdog clock enabled, hence, kernel will hang in
imx2_wdt_ping without clock, and then watchdog reset happen. Prevent the
above case by clearing WDOG_HW_RUNNING before suspend, and restore it with
ping in imx2_wdt_resume.

Understood, but I think that corner case should be a common potential issue
in all watchdog drivers which disable clock in suspend with WDOG_HW_RUNNING.
So common way looks better than many different specific flags in such different
watchdog driver with the similar intention?

BTW, for i.mx2_wdt which watchdog can't be stop unless kernel enter into suspend,
that seems like watchdog stop after suspend and clear WDOG_HW_RUNNING makes
sense?

We can not assume that the situation is exactly the same for all drivers
and use a core flag to indicate some driver specific state just to avoid
a driver-internal flag.

Either case, it looks like you are saying that the watchdog can be stopped
after all, by disabling its clock.

Yes, if you make it official and add a stop function which disables the watchdog
by stopping its clock. Then the driver should not set WDOG_HW_RUNNING in the
first place, and use the normal mechanisms to start and stop the watchdog.
That would include starting the clock in the start function, and stopping it
in the stop function.

Thanks,
Guenter

Sorry, watchdog can't be stopped by disabling clock. The only way to stop watchdog
is SOC enter Deep Sleep Mode(suspend) and stopped by HW,  so the suspend flow
looks like 'watchdog stop' which I though WDOG_HW_RUNNING makes sense. 
Okay, I will use internal flag instead of WDOG_HW_RUNNING in v2, thanks.
