Re: NetBSD-5 ichlpcib watchdog timer seems to be broken for some revisions of the ichlpcib chip set.
Hello. Of the 4 examples I have working at the moment, I have two
1. wdogctl works fine. It sets the timer, and the tickling function
works, either from user or kernel mode and, the machine only reboots if the
tickling function fails to be called.
2. The tickling function appears not to work. The timer is set and reboots
after the appropriate amount of time of not being tickled.
In all the cases I've reported where I see behavior number 2, I see
behavior number 1, i.e. everything works fine, under NetBSD-4. This seems
to be a NetBSD-5 phenomenon.
The chip set which does work properly under NetBSD-5 reports as:
ichlpcib0 at pci0 dev 31 function 0
ichlpcib0: Intel 82801DB LPC Interface Bridge (rev. 0x02)
Hope this helps.
