watchdog: update/improve/consolidate watchdog driver
Move the limited watchdog driver help from kernel-parameters.txt to Documentation/watchdog/watchdog-parameters.txt and add info to it for all watchdog drivers except the ones that have driver-specific files already. Correct minor comments and MODULE_PARM_DESC() text in 2 places. Signed-off-by: Randy Dunlap <randy.dunlap@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Wim Van Sebroeck <wim@iguana.be>
