I thought about that a bit. Since there is no /dev/watchdog and
no userspace communication channel, it seemed bad to put it there.
Heck, with no device, it doesn't necessarily fit in drivers/char in the
first place.
If a few folks think drivers/char/watchdog is better, I've no
problem with it. If anyone has a better idea...
