+ It is a read/write file. This attribute exists only if the
+ system has booted from the alternate flash chip due to
+ expiration of a watchdog timer of AST2400/AST2500 when
+ alternate boot function was enabled with 'aspeed,alt-boot'
+ devicetree option for that watchdog or with an appropriate
+ h/w strapping (for WDT2 only).
+ At alternate flash the 'access_cs0' sysfs node provides:
+ ast2400: a way to get access to the primary SPI flash
+ chip at CS0 after booting from the alternate
+ chip at CS1.
+ ast2500: a way to restore the normal address mapping
+ from (CS0->CS1, CS1->CS0) to (CS0->CS0,
+ Clearing the boot code selection and timeout counter also
+ resets to the initial state the chip select line mapping. When
+ the SoC is in normal mapping state (i.e. booted from CS0),
+ clearing those bits does nothing for both versions of the SoC.
+ For alternate boot mode (booted from CS1 due to wdt2
+ expiration) the behavior differs as described above.
+ This option can be used with wdt2 (watchdog1) only.
+ When read, the current status of the boot code selection is
+ shown. When written with any non-zero value, it clears
+ the boot code selection and the timeout counter, which results
+ in chipselect reset for AST2400/AST2500.
