Actually, my phone is regularly completely locked, so I just have to
take out the battery.  This 8s shutdown thingy sometimes works, so it
reduces the wear on the back-plate maybe by half, but it's still
not great.  Isn't there some hardware watchdog on this puppy that we
could use to get a reliable "reboot on freeze"?
