Hi,

Sorry for the delay here.

AFAICS, this is racy (for example, it still is possible for user space
to update the sysctl_* values after you've set them to 0). That can be
fixed, but I'm not sure it is worth the effort.

Since watchdog() is not expected to run very often in general, I think
I prefer your v1 after all, so please resend it.

Thanks,
Rafael
