Ah, I thought the warning is done in the caller of the modified
function. Maybe this means the commit log can be improved to for
example:

	The function watchdog_init_timeout() itself already emits a
	more informative warning on failure. So drop the driver specific
	one.

Otherwise my concerns are eliminated.

Thanks
Uwe
