Subject: [PATCH v2 0/7] watchdog: dw_wdt: Take Baikal-T1 DW WDT peculiarities into account

There were a few features enabled at the time of the Baikal-T1 SoC DW WDT
IP synthesis, which weren't taken into account in the DW WDT driver available
in the kernel. First of all the SoC engineers synthesized the watchdog core
with WDT_USE_FIX_TOP set to false (don't really know why, but they did).
Due to this the timer reset values weren't fixed as the driver expected
but were initialized with a pre-defined values selected by the engineers.
Secondly the driver expected that the watchdog APB bus and the timer had
synchronous reference clocks, while Baikal-T1 SoC DW WDT was created with
asynchronous ones. So the driver should enable two clock devices: APB bus
clocks and a separate timer reference clock. Finally DW Watchdog Timer is
capable of generating a pre-timeout interrupt if corresponding config is
enabled. The problem was that the pre-timeout IRQ happens when the set
timeout elapses, while the actual WDT expiration and subsequent reboot take
place in the next timeout. This makes the pre-timeout functionality
implementation a bit tricky, since in this case we would have to find a
WDT timeout twice smaller the requested timeout. All of the changes described
above are provided by the patches in this patchset.

In addition traditionally we replaced the legacy plain text-based dt-binding
file with yaml-based one and added the controller registers dump DebugFS node
to ease the driver debug procedure.

This patchset is rebased and tested on the mainline Linux kernel 5.6-rc4:
base-commit: 0e698dfa2822 ("Linux 5.7-rc4")
tag: v5.7-rc4

Changelog v2:
- Rearrange SoBs.
- Discard BE copyright header from the binding file.
- Replace "additionalProperties: false" with "unevaluatedProperties: false"
  property in the binding.
- Move the APB3 clocks support declared in the dt binding file into a
  dedicated patch.
- Move $ref to the root level of the "snps,watchdog-tops" property
  so does the constraints.
- Make Pre-timeout IRQs support being optional.
- Add "ms" suffix to the methods returning msec and convert the methods
  with no "ms" suffix to return a timeout in sec.
- Make sure minimum timeout is at least 1 sec.
- Refactor the timeouts calculation procedure to to retain the timeouts in
  the ascending order.
- Make sure there is no integer overflow in milliseconds calculation. It
  is saved in a dedicated uint field of the timeout structure.
- Discard timeout/pretimeout/ping/enable DebugFS nodes. Registers state
  dump node is only left.
