  I think it's not a bug, it's a normal behaviour.
  The kernel watchdog is normally not active when the machine is booted,
waiting for an user-space daemon to start handling of /dev/watchdog file
(opening it and manipulating it from time to time to show that it's still
alive). When you cat the file, kernel recognizes it as that such an app
is taking over control of the watchdog and starts it. However, because
cat closes the file immediately, it is not handled anymore and kernel
recognizes it as a userspace problem, thus rebooting the machine after
the timeout expires.
  With regards, Pavel Troller
