    Subject[PATCH 0/11 v3] Generic Watchdog Timer Driver
    Hi All,

    To reduce copying the same code over and over in each watchdog device driver, Alan Cox and myself constructed a new framework/API that consolidates the common watchdog timer driver functions.
    I incorporated the changes/feedback that I received from the second post.

    This framework/API consists of the following patches:
    part 1: Introduction of the WatchDog Timer Driver Core
    part 2: Add the basic ioctl functionality
    part 3: Add the WDIOC_KEEPALIVE ioctl
    part 4: Add the WDIOC_SETOPTIONS ioctl
    part 5: Add the WDIOC_SETTIMEOUT and WDIOC_GETTIMEOUT ioctl
    part 6: Add the Magic Close feature
    part 7: Add the nowayout feature
    part 8: Add support for a miscdev parent device
    part 9: Add support for extra ioctl calls
    part 10: Add the minimum and maximum timeout parameters.
    part 11: Remove llseek

    The code will also be added to linux-2.6-watchdog-next.

    Changes since V2:
    * all "flags" are unsigned
    * timeout values are also unsigned
    * removed unnececessary debugging
    * clean-up comments
    * the core will be in drivers/watchdog/ and not in drivers/watchdog/core/

    Kind regards,

     \ /
