ID #1037

The watchdog timer doesn't reboot the system if the activating application was aborted.

The WDT (WatchDog Timer) driver provides a special option called "Disable watchdog shutdown on close" to prevent stopping the timer on WDT descriptor close. This is a compile-time option. It is deactivated by default, so you have to build your own kernel if you need it.

make menuconfig

activate the option as shown below, and recompile the kernel.
