Hi,

I want to know if the Watchdog timer continue to run even after the linux kernel crash?

In my current system, Linux 4.9.11 on wandboard, after the linux kernel crashes nothing happen and  I have to reboot manually, which will not be possible when my system goes to field.

Manual or changed bits WDZST, WDBG, register WDOGx_WCR.
