To determine the max_timeout value, the below calculation is used.

    max_timeout = 0x10000000 / clk_rate

cat /sys/devices/platform/soc@0/b017000.watchdog/watchdog/watchdog0/max_timeout

However, this is not valid for all the platforms. IPQ SoCs starting from
IPQ40xx and recent Snapdragron SoCs also has the bark and bite time field
length of 20bits, which can hold max up to 32 seconds if the clk_rate is

If the user tries to configure the timeout more than 32s, then the value
will be truncated and the actual value will not be reflected in the HW.

To avoid this, lets add a variable called max_tick_count in the device data, which defines max counter value of the WDT controller. Using this, max-timeout
will be calculated in runtime for various WDT contorllers.

With this change, we get the proper max_timeout as below and restricts
the user from configuring the timeout higher than this.

cat /sys/devices/platform/soc@0/b017000.watchdog/watchdog/watchdog0/max_timeout

Guenter / Will, Can this be picked for v6.9? I don't see this in linux- next yet, so please consider this as a gentle reminder!

Guenter / Will, Gentle Reminder... is this change queued for v6.9?

Changes in v2:
- drop the minimum timeout change from 30s to 32s
- Link to v1:
