We have custom board with imx6 and touchscreen egalx_tx.c driver. It works correctly but sometimes it hangs up. We want to modify driver to read in every 60 second inforamtion from chip and if we check that it hangs we reset it. How can I implement this to driver? I know ioctl but I do not see this implementation in i2c_driver. I want from user space check if driver can read register from chip and if driver can't I reset chip by antoher ioctl command. Is it good idea? Can you give me example how implement ioctl functionality in i2c_driver? Thank you
