The ppc_uartd daemon is a Buffalo-specific daemon; it kicks the external hardware watchdog regularly. It is the stock avr_evtd daemon and monitors the buttons, the fan and how full the hdd is. If it isn't running, the slave microcontroller will assume a hardware or software failure and power down the system.
