Sometimes, machines' clock is not working at the right rate, or their watchdog is unreliable.
To fix this issue, we should have an external watchdog which is reset after the beginning of every new test, and kills the machine after exceeding it.
This watchdog's value should be greatly larger than the local watchdog in order to give it a chance to do the right thing.
