I applied patches 1,2 & 6 in testing.

Note, that hpwdt is passing NULL as the third parameter to watchdog_init_timeout().

The second patch in this series is using "dev" as input to dev_err and dev_warn.

This results in the following in dmesg when trying to load hpwdt w/ an invalid soft_margin:


[ 80.848160] (NULL device *): driver supplied timeout (4294967295) out of range
[ 80.855429] (NULL device *): falling back to default timeout (30)


if the call in hpwdt driver is changed to:

if (watchdog_init_timeout(&hpwdt_dev, soft_margin, &dev->dev))


We see the message like we'd desire:

[ 2061.167100] hpwdt 0000:01:00.0: driver supplied timeout (4294967295) out of range
[ 2061.174633] hpwdt 0000:01:00.0: falling back to default timeout (30)



watchdog_init_timeout() uses dev to "try to get the timeout_sec property"

I am not familiar with this part of the core and what effect having the hpwdt
driver pass in dev to watchdog_init_timeout would have. (I.e. is the
change safe?)

Guenter, can you help on this question?

Note, hpwdt isn't the only watch dog device that is passing NULL to
watchdog_init_timeout.

Thanks,


Jerry
