Thanks for taking a look on this again =) I agree with most of the
comments and correct them at next version.

I'll go with "sub-IRQ" then

If my memory serves me right we shortly discussed this already during v8
review ;) Cant blame you though as I have seen some of the mail traffic
going through your inbox :D
The motivation to have the functions exported from MFD is to not create
sirect dependency between RTC and WDT. There may be cases where we want
to leave either RTC or WDT out of compilation. MFD is always needed so
the dependency from MFD to RTC/WDT does not harm.
(Here's some discussion necromancy if you are interested in re-reading
how we did end up with this implementation:
I hope you are still Ok with having the WDT control functions in MFD.
