Wedge400 (AST2520) OpenBMC stuck at reboot

Hi there,

Recently I noticed a few Wedge400 (AST2520A2) units stuck after "reboot"
command. It's hard to reproduce (affecting ~1 out of 1,000 units), but
once it happens, I have to power cycle the chassis to recover OpenBMC.

I checked aspeed_wdt.c and manually played with watchdog registers, but
everything looks normal to me. Did anyone hit the similar error before?
Any suggestions which area I should look into?

Below are the last few lines of logs before OpenBMC hangs:
