While working on my software watchdog, it has come to my attention that the
"options HW_WDOG" in FreeBSD does absolutely nothing. does anybody actually
use this code, or can I purge it in favor of the software watchdog?
/usr/src/sys$ find . -type f |xargs grep HW_WDOG
./kern/kern_shutdown.c:#endif /* HW_WDOG */
All the bit in kern/kern_shutdown.c does is:
watchdog_tickle_fn wdog_tickler = NULL;
And I can't find that being used anywhere.
