It's a hardware issue.
Normally, setting a WDD lower would allow the system for a little time 
to print out something, before the inevitable reset happens...
In our case, setting WDD lower than max would not allow a single 
watchdog feed, as the first attempt to write the CR would trigger the reset.
This bug was not obvious because the driver was always setting both WDD 
and WDV to max... until timeout-sec property came up in DT which changes 
this.
