watchdog: Fix enabled value type
When deserializing a bool with sd_bus_message_read, it expects the storage of the passed in container to be 4 bytes. A bool is not guaranteed to be this large and will cause sd_bus_message_read to scribble on the stack. Change enabled to int to guarantee enough space to deserialize the result. For reference libsystemd is doing: *(int*) p = !!*(uint8_t*) q; Change-Id: Ic299e303fcb70941757c453a7b4f643337220afb Signed-off-by: William A. Kennington III <>
