What if the watchdog is not running ?

This ignores any heartbeat configured as module parameter, which most
people will consider unexpected. It might be worthwhile documenting that.

Why the double negation ?

		last_ping = (heartbeat - time_left) * 1000;

seems simpler. Also, what if heartbeat - time_left is negative for whatever
reason ?

I am not sure if it is a good idea to call rti_wdt_get_timeleft()
here. It might be better to add a helper function such as
rti_wdt_get_timeleft_ms() to return the time left in milli-seconds
for improved accuracy.
