Hi Wim,

thanks a lot for getting this all done.

There is also
Move and rename HP watchdog timer driver

[ Not sure if that is a good idea. For hwmon, I noticed that out-of-directory
hwmon drivers are not reviewed by hwmon maintainers, often resulting in bad
or even broken code ]

watchdog: Sysfs interface for MEN A21 watchdog

[ It might make more sense to add common sysfs attributes to the
watchdog code ]
