i.MX6: Using GPIO1_IO19

My intent is to configure the WDOG1 pin on the i.MX6 as GPIO output (to trigger a custom power-off circuit). The i.MX6 Reference Manual states that this is achievable by setting the Pad Mux Register (IOMUXC_SW_MUX_CTL_PAD_SD1_DATA2) MUX_MODE to ALT5, which selects the signal GPIO1_IO19.


In order to implement this, I have added the following lines to the iomuxc-block in the Linux Kernel device tree:


gpio19 {

    pinctrl_gpio19_1: gpio19grp-1 {

        fsl,pins = <

            MX6QDL_PAD_SD1_DAT2__GPIO1_IO19 0x80000000





From userspace I am now able to configure and use the GPIO like this:

$ echo 19 > /sys/class/gpio/export

$ echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio19/direction

$ echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio19/active_low

$ echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio19/value


(unfortunately I don't have a scope so I can't verify that the output value actually changes)


My question now is how to do this initialization in the device tree, so that I have the GPIO properly set up on system boot without using userland scripts?


My understanding is that I'd have to create a "gpio19" device in the tree that makes use of the pinctrl block I have defined, but I don't know how to declare such a device. This document describes properties for such a device that I don't know which values I'd have to assign to, e.g. the interrupt number.


I'm using a TQMa6S board with the latest BSP 0105.


Thanks in advance for any feedback!
