[PATCH 0/10 v2] Generic Watchdog Timer Driver

From: Wim Van Sebroeck
Date: Sat Jun 18 2011 - 13:18:09 EST

Hi All,

To reduce copying the same code over and over in each watchdog device driver, Alan Cox and myself constructed a new framework/API that consolidates the common watchdog timer driver functions.
I incorporated the changes/feedback that I received from the first post.

This framework/API consists of the following patches:
part 1: Introduction of the WatchDog Timer Driver Core
part 2: Add the basic ioctl functionality
part 3: Add the WDIOC_KEEPALIVE ioctl
part 4: Add the WDIOC_SETOPTIONS ioctl
part 6: Add the Magic Close feature
part 7: Add the nowayout feature
part 8: Add support for a miscdev parent device
part 9: Add support for extra ioctl calls
part 10: Add the minimum and maximum timeout parameters.

The code will also be added to linux-2.6-watchdog-next.

Kind regards,
