If the ATF provides a common watchdog hal interface and index, I am 
happy to match
the generic sec wdt driver. Compared to the current MTK wdt index [0], 
the following
indexes need to be supported for meson wdt [1].
- *_INIT.
- *_GETTIMEOUT.
- *_RESETNOW.  It is used to reset the system right now, similar to your 
SOFT RESET.

For another platform-specific parameter "SMC function ID", the generic 
sec wdt driver can get it from the dts, but if
the driver want to compatible with more vendors in the future, maybe we 
should consider Guenter's suggestion at [2]
