watchdog: iTCO_wdt: Drop option vendorsupport=2
iTCO_vendor_support's option vendorsupport=2 is a gross hack. It claims to extend the existing iTCO_wdt driver, but in fact programs a watchdog on a completely different device (Super-I/O) without requesting its I/O ports and without checking the device ID. This is an utterly dangerous thing to do. It also turns out to be unnecessary, because as far as I can tell, the code in question is basically duplicating what the clean w83627hf_wdt driver is doing. My guess is that on these SuperMicro boards which sparkled the implementation of vendorsupport=2, the watchdog functionality of the Intel south bridge is not used, and the watchdog feature of some W83627HF-like Super-I/O chip is used instead. So we should point the users to the w83627hf_wdt driver.

- * Vendor Support: 2
- * Board: Super Micro Computer Inc. P4SBx, P4DPx
- * iTCO chipset: ICH4
- *
- * Code contributed by: R. Seretny <lkpatches@paypc.com>
- * Documentation obtained by R. Seretny from SuperMicro Technical Support
- *
- * To enable Watchdog function:
- * 1. BIOS
- * For P4SBx:
- * BIOS setup -> Advanced -> Integrated Peripherals -> Watch Dog Feature
- * For P4DPx:
- * BIOS setup -> Advanced -> I/O Device Configuration -> Watch Dog
- * This setting enables or disables Watchdog function. When enabled, the
- * default watchdog timer is set to be 5 minutes (about 4m35s). It is
- * enough to load and run the OS. The application (service or driver) has
- * to take over the control once OS is running up and before watchdog
- * expires.
- *
- * 2. JUMPER
- * For P4SBx: JP39
- * For P4DPx: JP37
- * This jumper is used for safety. Closed is enabled. This jumper
- * prevents user enables watchdog in BIOS by accident.
- *
- * To enable Watch Dog function, both BIOS and JUMPER must be enabled.
- *
- * The documentation lists motherboards P4SBx and P4DPx series as of
- * 20-March-2002. However, this code works flawlessly with much newer
- * motherboards, such as my X6DHR-8G2 (SuperServer 6014H-82).
- *
- * The original iTCO driver as written does not actually reset the
- * watchdog timer on these machines, as a result they reboot after five
- * minutes.
- *
- * NOTE: You may leave the Watchdog function disabled in the SuperMicro
- * BIOS to avoid a "boot-race"... This driver will enable watchdog
- * functionality even if it's disabled in the BIOS once the /dev/watchdog
- * file is opened.
