Enabling Watchdog on iMX6 Solo (U-Boot SPL 2015.04)

Hello,

I have done search regarding the title however I could not find any information that answers my questions.  

I am looking at enabling the Watchdog Timer for my Freescale iMX6 Solo (VAR-SOM-MX6).  I have read the reference manual which outlines the following steps for Watchdog initialisation: 


70.6 Initialization

The following sequence should be performed for WDOG initialization.

• PDE bit of Watchdog Miscellaneous Control Register (WDOG_WMCR) should be cleared to disable the power down counter.

• WT field of Watchdog Control Register (WDOG_WCR) should be programmed for sufficient timeout value.

• WDOG should be enabled by setting WDE bit of Watchdog Control Register (WDOG_WCR) so that the timeout counter loads the WT field value of Watchdog Control Register (WDOG_WCR) and starts counting.

From: http://www.nxp.com/assets/documents/data/en/reference-manuals/IMX6SDLRM.pdf 

I noticed in the U-Boot files (/drivers/watchdog/imx_watchdog.c) there is no support for the Watchdog Miscellaneous Control Register (WDOG_WMCR) which is the first step of the sequence for initialising the Watchdog. 

If there were any resources or guides upon this process that would be greatly appreciated.  

Regards,

Brendan
