Platform does not really matter here, I mean does barebox trigger the 
watchdog if it is doing lengthy operations like writing flash to prevent 
it from being reset in the middle of the operation. That has little to 
do with if the platform has a watchdog or not.

So let me changes the question a bit;

Does barebox have a standard API to trigger and program a watchdog ?
