I gave a try to your patch, on top of the other ones.
For the kernel team, please note that some of the patches don't apply
cleanly on 2.6.32, because of some changes in context (mostly coding-style
changes) that apparently happened between 2.6.32 and the various patches
landing. I manually edited the patches to make them apply properly, please
ping me if you want the modified versions. The configs also need to be
modified to include CONFIG_F71808E_WDT=m.
Still for the kernel team, applying the release_mutex_region patch
makes the ABI check script barf with the following changes:
__devm_release_region module: vmlinux,
version: 0x969a2a91 -> 0x70191467, export: EXPORT_SYMBOL
__devm_request_region module: vmlinux,
version: 0x51144912 -> 0x9e7acb57, export: EXPORT_SYMBOL
For Giel, it appears the watchdog driver doesn't entirely work:
It loads fine:
f71808e_wdt: Found f71889fg watchdog chip, revision 21
But watchdog-test (as from Documentation/watchdog/src/watchdog-test.c)
doesn't work and outputs:
Watchdog device not enabled.
stracing it shows this:
open("/dev/watchdog", O_WRONLY) = -1 ENODEV (No such
Please tell me if you need more feedback.
