Description

It's necessary to use absolute time instead of relative for mode_timer().
The old implementation used a relative timeout thus the hardware watchdog was never triggered.
Commit f9e4715 show how to use it:

-#define next_ping_period(cks) msecs_to_jiffies(cks - 4)
+#define next_ping_period(cks) (jiffies + msecs_to_jiffies(cks - 4))
