Good, thanks.

Naming-wise, it's ugly that we already have a WATCHDOG event for guest
watchdog devices.  The following design however should allow setting up
multiple watchdogs

- Creating a watchdog from the command line:

-object watchdog,id=STR,timeout=NNN,chardev=CHR

and object_add/object-add can also be used for HMP and QMP.

- Reporting a watchdog timeout via QMP:

{ 'event': 'WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT',
  'data': { 'id': 'str' } }

- Protocol: the data sent on the chardev to QEMU must be


optionally followed by exactly one \n character.  All other data is ignored.
