    It is not very easy to test. About bug - most probably it is related to third
    party ESFQ patch, i will drop it and then test more properly when i will be
    able to make watchdog work fine. But more important i notice - that iTCO_wdt
    is not working at all. I think hrtimers doesn't change anything on that.
    About testing, i cannot take even small risk now(and near 3-5 days) by
    changing kernel options, i set now maximum available set of watchdogs, cause
    there is noone to maintain server, area is unreachable because of snow and
    bad weather.

    Do you think reasonable to try acpi / pnpacpi with iTCO_wdt to make it work?
    Maybe just registers addresses or way how TCO watchdog activated changed on
    this chipset?
