I don't see the point of stopping the watchdog here, even though that is the
old behavior. If it is possible to detect that the watchdog is running, we
can let the core handle pings until the watchdog device is opened. The code
above does that, but only if nowayout is set. That seems inconsistent and
unnecessary. Is there a downside to doing that unconditionally ?

Nitpick: s/watchddog/watchdog/ in subject line.

Thanks,
Guenter
