GPL Code is copied with explicit permission from Daniel Widyanto:

The project name is based on Samsung's “daisy” reference board design and I liked this quote from the daisy dog FAQ:

Daisy Dogs are not persnickety little ankle biters

When this daisydog doesn't run, the machine should reset. :)

An alternative code to start with would have been:

The watchdog project is alot more complicated than what the Chromium OS project needs.
