Hi Tony,
I had the OMAP5 running very very hot by a kernel hang (most likely a spinlock).
And I wondered if there is no safety mechanism (watchdog timer).

I did a little research and there seems to be no WDT driver for the Palmas in
mainline.

There was something:

	https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/367777/

but it seems it did not arrive upstream.
Any reasons or problems with the driver? Or a newer version sitting in some
git?

BR and thanks,
Nikolaus
