That seems logical and reasonable. Are we saying no changes to watchdog
drivers in general until this is done? because I have other patches
for this driver
that among other things actually make it work properly. As it stands today
the timeout calculations are broken which results in random reboots.
The framework patch was submitted 3.5 months ago and isn't in yet. Is it held up
on something? I don't see any negative comments.

Not to be a pedant but, this doesn't change the API at all.
