Hi All,

The single patch in this series adds support for the watchdog integrated into
the SMSC SCH5627 and SCH5636 superio-s. Since the watchdog is part of the
hwmon logical device and thus shares ioports with it, the watchdog driver is
integrated into the existing hwmon drivers for these.

As such I think it is best if this patch gets merged through the hwmon tree.

Note that this version of the watchdog support for sch56xx superio-s
implements the watchdog chardev interface itself, rather then relying on
the recently added watchdog core / watchdog_dev. The code for this was
lifted (almosy) 1 on 1 from the fschmd which has a watchdog driver integrated
in a similar fashion.

This is done because currently some needed functionality is missing from
watchdog_dev, as soon as this functionality is added (which is being discussed
on the linux-watchdog mailinglist), I'll convert this driver over to using
watchdog_dev.

Regards,

Hans
