2012-05-30watchdog: Add support for dynamically allocated watchdog_device structsHans de Goede1-1/+27
If a driver's watchdog_device struct is part of a dynamically allocated struct (which it often will be), merely locking the module is not enough, even with a drivers module locked, the driver can be unbound from the device, examples: 1) The root user can unbind it through sysfd 2) The i2c bus master driver being unloaded for an i2c watchdog I will gladly admit that these are corner cases, but we still need to handle them correctly. The fix for this consists of 2 parts: 1) Add ref / unref operations, so that the driver can refcount the struct holding the watchdog_device struct and delay freeing it until any open filehandles referring to it are closed 2) Most driver operations will do IO on the device and the driver should not do any IO on the device after it has been unbound. Rather then letting each driver deal with this internally, it is better to ensure at the watchdog core level that no operations (other then unref) will get called after the driver has called watchdog_unregister_device(). This actually is the bulk of this patch. Signed-off-by: Hans de Goede <hdegoede@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Wim Van Sebroeck <wim@iguana.be>
2012-05-30watchdog: Add Locking supportHans de Goede1-0/+2
This patch fixes some potential multithreading issues, despite only allowing one process to open the /dev/watchdog device, we can still get called multiple times at the same time, since a program could be using thread, or could share the fd after a fork. This causes 2 potential problems: 1) watchdog_start / open do an unlocked test_n_set / test_n_clear, if these 2 race, the watchdog could be stopped while the active bit indicates it is running or visa versa. 2) Most watchdog_dev drivers probably assume that only one watchdog-op will get called at a time, this is not necessary true atm.

set_timeout success When a set_timeout operation succeeds this does not necessarily mean that the exact timeout requested has been achieved, because the watchdog does not necessarily have a 1 second resolution.

2008-08-12docsrc: build Documentation/ sourcesRandy Dunlap1-0/+8
Currently source files in the Documentation/ sub-dir can easily bit-rot since they are not generally buildable, either because they are hidden in text files or because there are no Makefile rules for them. This needs to be fixed so that the source files remain usable and good examples of code instead of bad examples. Add the ability to build source files that are in the Documentation/ dir. Add to Kconfig as "BUILD_DOCSRC" config symbol. Use "CONFIG_BUILD_DOCSRC=1 make ..." to build objects from the Documentation/ sources. Or enable BUILD_DOCSRC in the *config system. However, this symbol depends on HEADERS_CHECK since the header files need to be installed (for userspace builds). Built (using cross-tools) for x86-64, i386, alpha, ia64, sparc32, sparc64, powerpc, sh, m68k, & mips.

2005-09-05[PATCH] ppc32: Added support for the Book-E style Watchdog TimerKumar Gala1-0/+20
PowerPC 40x and Book-E processors support a watchdog timer at the processor core level. The timer has implementation dependent timeout frequencies that can be configured by software. One the first Watchdog timeout we get a critical exception. It is left to board specific code to determine what should happen at this point. If nothing is done and another timeout period expires the processor may attempt to reset the machine. Command line parameters: wdt=0 : disable watchdog (default) wdt=1 : enable watchdog wdt_period=N : N sets the value of the Watchdog Timer Period. The Watchdog Timer Period meaning is implementation specific. Check User Manual for the processor for more details. This patch is based off of work done by Takeharu Kato.
