    watchdog: Rename confusing state variable · 3c00ea82
    Frederic Weisbecker authored
    We have two very conflicting state variable names in the
    * watchdog_enabled: This one reflects the user interface. It's
    set to 1 by default and can be overriden with boot options
    or sysctl/procfs interface.
    * watchdog_disabled: This is the internal toggle state that
    tells if watchdog threads, timers and NMI events are currently
    running or not. This state mostly depends on the user settings.
    It's a convenient state latch.
    Now we really need to find clearer names because those
    are just too confusing to encourage deep review.
    watchdog_enabled now becomes watchdog_user_enabled to reflect
    its purpose as an interface.
    watchdog_disabled becomes watchdog_running to suggest its
    role as a pure internal state.
