i.MX6 watchdog: reboot on system halt

I am currently working on a system based on i.MX6 Solo and I am experiencing a "weird" behavior...


Everytime I shutdown my Linux box (kernel 3.10.17) by typing "halt", then at the end (just before "Power down") the kernel dumps something like "imx2-wdt 20bc000.wdog: Device shutdown: Expect reboot!" and after a couple of minutes the board is restarted...


In my own opinion, if I halt the system on my own, then I want to keep it turned off, isn't it? Why the watchdog fires? Is there a way for avoiding that?


Thanks + regards,
