Sadly, it's not that easy.

Whenever the user enables the watchdog feature via the systemd
unit file the program _has_ to respond to it; otherwise it'll
be stopped

So the watchdog integration has to stay, but we can make that
optional from the code if no watchdog functionality has been
requested from systemd.

That way the code will run unaffected and the watchdog-specific
parts will only be used when the user has activated the watchdog
from the systemd unit file.
