Subject[PATCH 1/14/] Doc. sources: expose watchdog
From: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@xenotime.net>

Documentation/watchdog/:
Expose example and tool source files in the Documentation/ directory in
their own files instead of being buried (almost hidden) in readme/txt files.

This will make them more visible/usable to users who may need
to use them, to developers who may need to test with them, and
to janitors who would update them if they were more visible.

Also, if any of these possibly should not be in the kernel tree at
all, it will be clearer that they are here and we can discuss if
they should be removed.

some data to the device. So a very simple watchdog daemon would look

A more advanced driver could for example check that a HTTP server is
still responding before doing the write call to ping the watchdog.
