Yes, I think this is useless. The original ds1374_wdt_disable has the same issue.

This driver starts watchdog by default. In probe watchdog starts:
#ifdef CONFIG_RTC_DRV_DS1374_WDT
save_client = client;
ret = misc_register(&ds1374_miscdev);
if (ret)
return ret;
ret = register_reboot_notifier(&ds1374_wdt_notifier);
if (ret) {
misc_deregister(&ds1374_miscdev);
return ret;
}
ds1374_wdt_settimeout(131072); //Here starts watchdog
#endif
And userspace watchdogd will ping.

Is this multi function patch has any update ? If not, could my patch be acceptable before moving to watchdog subsystem.(I could update a new patch for your suggestion)?
Because current kernel using ds1374 for watchdog. If the device need suspend, there will be a reboot issue.
