generic gpio watchdog is good stuff ...

perhaps "watchdog" rather than "wdt" considering it's already
"linux/watchdog.h" ?

this should be <asm/gpio.h>

no point in setting this i dont think ...

this two lines should be merged.

should be -ENOTTY like all the other watchdogs

this only gets used once in the init function ... having it be broken
out like this is kind of silly

shouldnt this be __devinit ?

why ? it'd be trivial to abstract this driver away from a global
"watchdog" state into a proper arbitrary # of gpio watchdogs.

shouldnt this be __devexit ?

i'm pretty sure this is incorrect and instead should read:
#define gpio_wdt_suspend NULL
#define gpio_wdt_resume NULL

> +static struct platform_driver gpio_wdt_driver = {

once you fix the remove to be __devexit, this should be __devexit_p()

this is misleading/confusing. suggested rewording:
This option enables support for a watchdog connected via GPIO lines
(such as the MAX823).

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be
called gpio_wdt.

no idea why you're including this as it is surely incorrect and not
needed. please remove it and add <linux/types.h>.

this belongs in the driver C file, not the header.
