I've looked into the code now, and the watchdog stuff is for some PC

I haven't looked at them in deep detail, but what I've seen was ok.

Sure. But it isn't as reliable as a hardware dog ;-)

*Some* reason? :-) Indeed, the many reasons are that sound stuff on
PCs needs a lot of compile-time configuration and tweaking...

Don't know if it works at all :-) AFAICR, even Hamish in the first
times already used ext2. I think nobody would miss the module :-) (And
nobody would notice it if the subdir disappeared from the kernel
source :-))

This also has never been tested on m68k, AFAIK.

Can't hurt.

Right. A module is always ok.
