Comment (by Chris Johns):

 Replying to [comment:5 Sebastian Huber]:
 > I think the general question is what should be the behaviour if a user
 specifies a timeout which is after the specified uptime of the system
 (which is WATCHDOG_MAX_SECONDS, about 544 years). See also

 Yes that would work. If the `tv_sec` field is more than
 `WATCHDOG_MAX_SECONDS` limit it to that value. We need to make the
 conversion predictable for all possible `timespec` input values.
