IMO in general is a bad idea to duplicate a defconfig for the same
board, you just duplicate the maintenance effort.

I wonder what would be the implication of enabling it by default on the
general defconfig.

What about using a debugger or kgdb from Linux?
What is the watchdog timeout once you enable it? Can we be sure that the
OS will be able to start in time to refresh the watchdog?
