i have been unable to find any documentation on howto use the UML watchdog.
after compiling it into the guest kernel i get a "UML Watchdog Timer"
message at bootup.
however /dev/watchdog is not created and if i create it myself (mknod
/dev/watchdog c 10 130)
writing to /dev/watchdog will not have any effect on the system (i.e. no
kernel message about the
watchdog timer being active is returned and the UML will not reboot even if
no more writes to
/dev/watchdog are issued)
is the UML watchdog maybe not meant to be used alone? does it depend on the
the software watchdog?
