The referenced AMD document 44413 is over 10 years old, and I'm
concerned when I try to line that document up against the newer versions
that are implemented in AMD's EPYC processors, that the bit being
manipulated as SP5100_WDT_ACTION_RESET is effectively reserved in the
newer references, for example:

Is Core::X86::Msr::CpuWdtCfg in the newer document is the same as
WatchDogControl in the cited 44413.pdf? If so, then I would point out
that bit 2 is now included in what is called, CpuWdtTimeBase where
values 2-3H are reserved, meaning bit 2 effectively must be zero.
