The ichlpcib driver supports the Intel ICH LPC Interface Bridges on com-
patible chipsets. Supported functions include:
· Watchdog timer. The watchdog timer may be configured for a 1 seconds
(on ICH6 or newer) and 2 seconds (on ICH5 or older) min period and
for a 23 seconds (on ICH5 or older) or 367 seconds max period (on
ICH6 or newer).
Prior to NetBSD 8.0, the x86/tco(4) watchdog timer was included as
part of the ichlpcib driver, and did not require explicit configura-
· Power Management timer. A 24-bit timer available to be used by the
· SpeedStep. In some older systems the SpeedStep function is also
available, and can be used to switch between high and low frequency
(to reduce power consumption) via the machdep.speedstep_state
sysctl(8) node. A value of 0 will use the low frequency (low power)
and a 1 will enable the high frequency (full power).
· General Purpose Input/Output. The ICH provides up to 64 I/O pins
which can be accessed through the gpio(4) framework.
