I have a Linux BSP that was built with a custom board file that includes the following line which should load the watchdog timer.



     imx6q_add_imx2_wdt(0, NULL);


During boot I get the following console message.


     imx2-wdt imx2-wdt.0: IMX2+ Watchdog Timer enabled. timeout=60s (nowayout=1)


Problem is the timer is not enabled and has not loaded 60s into the timer. Does the WD timer start automatically or does it need to be manually started? I do have the following device available- /dev/watchdog.
