Driver vor Watchdog

I'm currently developing a driver for this watchdog-card:
'Antrax WatchCard PCI' -> http://www.antrax.de/ (German)
(btw. Antrax != Anthrax)
And now I have some questions:
- Should I develop the driver for 4.x or 5.x or both?
- What would be the preferred method for configuring and handling the card?
a: using a kernel module for triggering and sysctl for config?
(this method is preferred by me)
b: a daemon that handles all of that?
c: a tool which could be run by cron or the like?
- Are there any quirks I should take care of?
The card uses a PITA-2 (PSB4610) from Infineon as PCI-Controller and has an
optional sensor for system temperature.
