imx6q sw watchdog timeout

Hi all,


i was trying to set a 10 seconds timeout to the imx6 wdt ,referring to imx2-wdt driver, by


regmap_update_bits(wdev->regmap, IMX2_WDT_WCR, IMX2_WDT_WCR_WT,

just after i reload the counter by:   


#define IMX2_WDT_WSR          0x02          /* Service Register */
#define IMX2_WDT_SEQ1          0x5555          /* -> service sequence 1 */
#define IMX2_WDT_SEQ2          0xAAAA          /* -> service sequence 2 */

regmap_write(wdev->regmap, IMX2_WDT_WSR, IMX2_WDT_SEQ1);
regmap_write(wdev->regmap, IMX2_WDT_WSR, IMX2_WDT_SEQ2);


Watchdog timeout then happens somewhere between 5 and 10 secs, so much before the desired 10 seconds .

Double checked this also using sa mod_timer of 10secs, it never reaches the callback since watchdog reset happens before.


Why ?


Thanks to all,
