Yes. I think we need to discuss the ABI/sysfs files a bit. I am not
sure we should toggle the sysfs files depending on the boot mode :
primary vs. alternate. We could have the same files always and return
EIO if some conditions are not met. Something like :

* boot mode : primary/alternate. Write changes the next boot.
* watchdog management

Also, there is no need to introduce a new include file with large
inline functions.
