[PATCH] IPMI: watchdog handle panic properly

Modify the watchdog timeout in IPMI to only do things at panic/reboot time if
the watchdog timer was already running.  Some BIOSes do not disable the
watchdog timer at startup, and this led to a reboot a while later if the new
OS running didn't start monitoring the watchdog, even if the watchdog was not
running before.
