Sigh. This starts to be silly. You test something and have no idea what it

Hang the system eventually? Does that mean that the system stops working
and the watchdog does not catch the problem?

I know that 1 is a valid value and I know how that can be set. Still, it
does not help if you believe that setting the threshold to 1 can speed up
