Ah, that explains why it worked. I suppose you do have additional
patches that fix the IRQ request bit?

No. We already discussed this on LAK, and the outcome was the current
binding, so let's not change that again.

That's a possibility.

Given that no in-tree platform seem to be using this watchdog (at least
a quick grep didn't reveal anything), I'd be inclined to simply change
the offset in smp_twd.h and let them break.
