[PATCH] EEH detection in acenic watchdog

There's no code in the acenic watchdog that reads the registers on the board (i.e. readb/w/l), so
EEH freeze will never be detected.

Attached patch adds a call to eeh_check_failure in the watchdog function. This is an expensive call,
but watchdog timeouts shouldn't happen (often) on a healthy system.

(Same procedure as yesterday: I'll check this into BK in a bit unless I get comments).
