[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH 1/1] [kernel] ar71xx: reset problem fix

This patch fixes the reset bug on the ar71xx platform.

The reboot command causes sometimes hanging routers with TL-WDR3600 (HW V1.5) and TL-WDR4300 (HW V1.7) platforms and probably also on other devices.

Sometimes a reboot is successful, sometimes not and a power cycle of the device is required.
This patch runs an endless loop after the interrupts get disabled and the FULL_CHIP_RESET gets set and waits then until the CPU reboots.

There is also a ticket #17839 to this bug.
