Given the fact that the manpage for watchdog states that the default is
1 second, why do you want such long sleep times?

Also, the man page says that "If -e cmd is not specified, the daemon
will perform a trivial file system check instead." - maybe this
filesystem check is not successful on the soekris?

Anyway, on linux I never had any problems with the watchdog, so I assume
that the hardware watchdog works.
