I think that analogy is needlessly cruel. Instead of perpetually beating the watchdog unconscious I think we should rather `wdt_feed` it and have it reset the system when it starves.

We could also `wdt_pet` it, but I think the behavior when stopped being petted is not universal among all watchdogs.
