The manual for this motherboard does not provide much information about

the Super I/O chip and whether the watchdog timer is built-in to the
Super I/O chip.
Ah, I somehow thought you were associated with WinSystems, since you know
how to configure the chip.
Did you get any useful output from sensors-detect or superiotool
(like 'unknown chip xxxx'), or did those tools find nothing ?
Unfortunately, the sensors-detect only reported "No" for each Super I/O
chip test, while the superiotool gave an unhelpful "No Super I/O chip
I haven't heard a response yet from WinSystems, but I'll give them a
couple days before sending another email to their engineering
department. For now, I'll submit a version 4 of this patch to get the
minor updates I made out for review; for what its worth, I believe the
dmi_match method will be sufficient until I get an update from
WinSystems helping me get a proper check to identify the Super I/O chip.
