Subject[PATCH 4.4 097/190] powerpc/[booke|4xx]: Dont clobber TCR[WP] when setting TCR[DIE]
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ivan Mikhaylov <ivan@de.ibm.com>


[ Upstream commit 6e2f03e292ef46eed2b31b0a344a91d514f9cd81 ]

Prevent a kernel panic caused by unintentionally clearing TCR watchdog
bits. At this point in the kernel boot, the watchdog may have already
been enabled by u-boot. The original code's attempt to write to the TCR
register results in an inadvertent clearing of the watchdog
configuration bits, causing the 476 to reset.
