    SubjectRe: How to kick a secondary watchdog? (Re: [PATCH 1/3] watchdog: sync linux-omap changes)
    Hi Tony,

    Plan is to go to a uniform watchdog driver first, then add sysfs
    capabilities and then we can add more devices via sysfs.
    For the time being: I would kick both of them at the same time
    via the /dev/watchdog interface.
