Re: [PATCH v4 1/2] Use "request_muxed_region" in it87 watchdog drivers

I looked at your code in kernel/resource.c and I agree the while
is not needed. I guess every time it comes back from "schedule" your
code loops back to reserve the region. I will test the code without
the while and make the needed change.
