I tried to follow the style most commonly used in the rest of the file,
but I can add the new string to the binding documentation and use it here.

I guess the same as the watchdog on my x86 PC - debugging/testing software
using watchdogs. ;)

Yes, I could have sent it as independent patch, but I figured merging
is easier if there aren't independent patches touching the same file at
the same time.

I mostly added support for the watchdog because it was listed in the
wiki as untested and it cost me virtually no time to run a few tests while
working on the teres.

Thanks,
Harald
