No, that is definitively not OK, which is what the PR is about.

It is not OK for a regular atf run to cause a reboot of the test machine
though, so this is a temporary hack around the issue (and admitedly a very
ugly hack).

At the very least, the user-land watchdog tickler should wire itself down.

My impression of the point is that it be normal, so that the system
reboots if normal processes cannot be run.    It seems like once
whatever bug exists is fixed, wiring is probably not necessary anyway.

It might be better to run the test in a rump-kernel rather than in a
"live" environment....
