The timeout module parameter should not be used for setting the default
timeout. Because, if you set the timeout = 0, the default timeout will
be meaningless. And the timeout module parameter of 0 means "no timeout
module paraameter specified".

You should also replace

static int timeout = WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT;

with

static int timeout;

to ensure that the module parameter is only evaluated if it is actually
set. Otherwise your patch has no real impact except if someone explicitly
specifies a timeout parameter of 0 which doesn't really make much sense.

Thanks,
Guenter
