That actually looks like a great solution, but I currently cannot  
recompile the kernel to enable SW_WATCHDOG and take those servers down. We  
have identical hardware in a test environment that I can do that on and  
hopefully see if we can get a clone of the problematic VMs to fail there  
with the watchdogd enabled.
