the condition whether to enable the HW interrupts (IMO) should be
controlled by the DTS as part of the static configuration.

sure, this is true

actually no, unless we are looking at different files, the original code
did set the bark time even though PRETIMEOUT was not enabled... so yes
bark was being set to bite. Maybe I am misunderstanding your point.

I'll change to your recomendation and repost v5 - I thought
WDIOF_PRETIMEOUT was formally correct but functionally there is little
difference (if the hardware works as expected)

thanks for all your comments Guenter.
