Hi Robin,

Have a look at our driver, which uses the kernel's watchdog api:

It will probably never get into vanilla 2.4 because Marcelo doesn't
respond to my Emails. However, it is really stable since months...
What other driver were you talking about?

Tom, would you put this driver into the 2.4 ppc trees if I rediffed it?
