Patch(es) to add the functionality to the watchdog core are welcome;
it should be possible to move the functionality into the core (maybe
to be enabled with a new watchdog API call). Doing it using the class
device sounds like an excellent idea. This should be straightforward
to implement, though the question of "should we ping on resume or not"
might be an endless source for bike shedding fun.
