Hi Joseph,

Thank you for testing!
I will submit this patch to the linux-watchdog community after adding
commit log to patch.

In the case of SP5100 and SB7x0 chipset, the sp5100_tco driver
overwrites a free resource I/O memory address obtained by
allocate_resource() to the MMIO address registers for watchdog timer.
In the case of M3A78-CM, the sp5100_tco driver was using 0xfed45000 as
a MMIO address. Since 0xfed45000 is the free I/O memory resource
address, this is the expected behavior.

[ 18.852540] sp5100_tco: Using 0xfed45000 for watchdog MMIO address

However, Rewriting the MMIO address registers for the watchdog timer
must have generated the problem. I think that the problem has occurred
with the chipset or the BIOS layer. So, It's difficult for me to
investigate the problem, and the problem is critical. Thus, I decided
to delete the concerned codes.
