    [WATCHDOG] Semi-typical watchdog bug re early misc_register()
    
    It seems that some watchdog drivers are doing following mistake:
    
        rv = misc_register();
        if (rv < 0)
                return rv;
        rv = request_region();
        if (rv < 0) {
                misc_deregister();
                return rv;
        }
    
    But, right after misc_register() returns, misc device can be opened and
    ioctls interacting with hardware issued, and driver can do outb() to
    port it doesn't own yet, because request_region() is still pending.
    
    Here is my patch, compile-tested only.
