ichwd(4) added, watchdog watches

Francois Tigeot has added ichwd(4), a driver for the watchdog function on some Intel ICH motherboard chipsets.  Sascha Wildner has also made the kernel option for it on by default.  (Look for /dev/wdog.)

Update: Francois Tigeot sent a link to an excellent page explaining hardware watchdogs.
