Bug#638863: "shpchp: Cannot reserve MMIO region" error during boot (linux 3.0)

I applied the patches you sent to the list, for both of the issues, and the
messages are both gone. (Those address conflict messages I mentioned were
already gone with the plain rc3).
However, I don't know how to verify that the watchdog works. I installed the
"watchdog" package, and I just did "kill -9 <watchdog PID>", but the system
keeps running. The same behaviour is shown with the 3.0 shipped by Debian. Now
I don't know if that's the watchdog or my verification method failing ;-)
