I'm also fine with deleting mach-dove, but that would be much more
disruptive to Russell's work, so I don't think that helps anyone.

I've rebased the series to leave out the last two patches for dove,
and added the watchdog on dove, so I can at least get the other
patches out of my queue if that works for now.
