comment My process was killed but I cannot understand the kernel notice
Thankyou for your answer - it is very helpful. Unfortunately, when my application is opening the serial port, the sak that I just disabled gets re-enabled. I must be setting a particular flag combination that is re-enabling the SAK on /dev/ttyS0

Thanks for this answer. I realise now that chmod is not sufficient for my requirements and I need to use chattr +i on my files. Thanks again

comment Installing a platform driver
Thanks for this - yes the insmod has created an entry in /sys/class/misc/watchdog . The misc seems to refer to the device major of 10 and so now I have all I need to know to create a node with mknod. Thanks for your help.
