Hi, thank you for writing the fix!

Yes, all works as expected.  I tested it by doing a kill -9 watchdogd

# kldload ./ichwd.ko
# dmesg | tail -3
ichwd module loaded
ichwd0: <Intel ICH7 watchdog timer> on isa0
ichwd0: Intel ICH7 watchdog timer (TCO version 2)

# watchdogd -t 20
# ps -auxw | grep dog
root     86686  0.0  0.0  1408   860  ??  Ss    1:28PM   0:00.00 
watchdogd -t 20
root     86688  0.0  0.1  1596  1044  p0  S+    1:28PM   0:00.00 grep dog
# kill -9 86686


and about 20 seconds later, the box reboots.
