Thank you Jerry for the comments.
I actually use a separate daemon process to kick the watchdog on my BMC system. The daemon monitors temperature sensors and other system states and kicks watchdog periodically: if the daemon gets stuck or exits, then the machine needs to reboot even if kernel/systemd is fine. Perhaps I need to look for a better/official way to manage the watchdog device..
BTW, I will be travelling abroad in the new few days and may not be able to reply emails timely. Thank you again for jumping in.
