Re: NetBSD-5 ichlpcib watchdog timer seems to be broken for some revisions of the ichlpcib chip set.
Hello. In my case, the watchdog timers actually reboot the system.
Unfortunately, with these revisions, the reboot is certain, not just if the
timer fails to be tickled. I have another revision that works fine.
