Thanks for your reply, if i take the wdt node as child of secure monitor
(sm), how should
i register or find the wdt device ?

I only think of the following three methods :
1). update the sm driver,and scan&register wdt device when the sm driver
probes(It is like i2c), but there
are too many changes involved.

2). add "simple-bus" key string to compatible of sm node, and it will
make the child node is registered as
platform device, but it seems that the key string is not match current
scene.

secure-monitor {
    compatible = "amlogic,meson-gxbb-sm",  "simple-bus";

    watchdog {
        compatible = "amlogic,meson-sec-wdt";
        timeout-sec = <60>;
    }
}

3).  don't register device, and find directly the watchdog node by using
the of_* API in watchdog
driver (Eg: linux-4.x/drivers/tee/optee/core.c)

secure-monitor {
    compatible = "amlogic,meson-gxbb-sm";

    watchdog {
        compatible = "amlogic,meson-sec-wdt";
        timeout-sec = <60>;
    }
}

The method 3 looks better for me, do you have a better suggestion ? Thanks
