The WinSystems EBC-C384 has an onboard watchdog timer. The timeout range
supported by the watchdog timer is 1 second to 255 minutes. Timeouts
under 256 seconds have a 1 second granularity, while the rest have a 1
minute granularity.

This driver adds watchdog timer support for this onboard watchdog timer.
The timeout may be configured via the timeout module parameter.

Changes in v7:
- Make sure timeout member is in seconds resolution despite minutes

For Wim's benefit:

You forgot the actual change. The follow-up RESEND is really confusing;
RESEND indicates that no change was made, and leaves it up to us to figure
out what is going on. If something like this happens again, just add
another rev and add a note indicating what has (really) changed.

Also, when you make code changes, please drop previous Reviewed-by: or
Acked-by: tags unless you got explicit permission from the reviewer
to keep the tag.
