According to the datasheet, it should be sufficient to
- Write 0 into WDOG_TIMEOUT_RANGE_REG_OFFSET to select the minimum timeout period
- Write 0x1 into WDOG_CONTROL_REG_OFFSET to enable the watchdog and select reset
   as desired action. This can be unconditional.

Writing into the restart register should not be necessary.

Thanks,
Guenter
