Subject: [PATCH] watchdog: make DesignWare watchdog allow users to set bigger
 timeout value

watchdog_dev.c provides means to allow users to set bigger timeout value
than HW can support, make DesignWare watchdog align with this.

{ } is unnecessary here. Also, the above code compares the _old_
timeout againt the maximum supported timeout, which doesn't look
correct.

Hi Guenter, 

Thank you for your time.
- I will remove the unnecessary {}
- wdd->max_hw_heartbeat_ms is the max timeout value which HW can support, this value is limited according to the input clock, say. It only supports 20 seconds, if users requires to set timeout to be say. 60 seconds, the watchdog device driver 'watchdog_dev.c' checks if wdd->timeout is bigger than wdd->max_hw_heartbeat_ms, if yes, watchdog_dev.c feeds the watchdog by a worker queue itself to help to feed the watchdog before 60 seconds elapse. Here the issue of dw_wdt.c is that, the original codes update wdd->timeout to the value which HW can support, which means if users requires 60 seconds to be the timeout, then dw_wdt.c updates the timeout value to 20 seconds, this makes the "feeding helper" mechanism in watchdog_dev.c not take effect. That's why I add this check.

Thanks,
Peng Wang

Yes, I understand you need a check. What I am saying is that the check is wrong.

You need something like

	if (top_s > DW_WDT_MAX_TOP)
		wdt->timeout = top_s;
	else
		wdt->timeout = dw_wdt_top_in_seconds(dw_wdt, top_val);

Actually, this function is used by watchdog_dev.c, the timeout value in wdd is already modified there. 
but yes, you are right, decide the actual timeout value here is more reasonable. :)

		wdt->timeout = top_s;
	else
		wdt->timeout = dw_wdt_top_in_seconds(dw_wdt, top_val);

Please avoid top-posting.

watchdog_dev.c only sets wdd->timeout if there is no driver function
to set it.
