SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/5] watchdog: octeon: Handle the FROZEN hot plug notifier actions.
Hi Richard,

> When performing a suspend operation, the kernel brings all of the
> non-boot CPUs offline, calling the hot plug notifiers with the flag,
> CPU_TASKS_FROZEN, set in the action code. Similarly, during resume,
> the CPUs are brought back online, but again the notifiers have the
> FROZEN flag set.
> While some very few drivers really need to treat suspend/resume
> specially, this driver unintentionally ignores the notifications.
> This patch changes the driver to disable the watchdog interrupt
> whenever the CPU goes offline, and to enable it whenever the CPU goes
> back online. As a result, the suspended state is no longer a special
> case that leaves the watchdog active.
