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

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.

Regards,
Wim.
