So, here is my second approach, now avoiding probe() and targetting the init
call. To avoid boilerplate, I introduced macros similar to module_driver(). It
still feels a little adventurous because of hard-coding
'.driver.suppress_bind_attts' in the macro and trusting various driver types
(like platform and PCI) to follow this structure.

Having all this said, it works nicely on my Renesas Salvator-XS (R-Car M3-N).
build bot is happy. A git branch can be found here:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/wsa/linux.git renesas/wdt-suppress-attr

Looking forward to comments.



Changes since V2:
	* keep the remove callback valid
	* remove 'if' from macro

Wolfram Sang (4):
  watchdog: core: add mechanism to prevent removing if NOWAYOUT
  watchdog: renesas_wdt: avoid removing if NOWAYOUT
  watchdog: core: add module_watchdog_pci_driver()
  watchdog: i6300esb: avoid removing if NOWAYOUT
