Basically you can use sbd (https://github.com/ClusterLabs/sbd) to take
care of the watchdog and to stop triggering it in cases where you want
the node to reliably reboot.
Integration with pacemaker might look a little different depending
on which distribution or pacemaker-version you are on.
Primary intent why sbd came into life was to distribute poison pills
via shared storage but you can use it with a hardware-watchdog
