[systemd-devel] StartLimitAction=none and Watchdog

I noticed a problem with the current watchdog code. When the watchdog for a
service triggers then the service is stopped with service_enter_dead().
Then the restart logic takes over and restarts the service. However, if the
rate limit is exceeded and StartLimitAction=none, then the service just
stays dead, but the last running process is still there.
This is not visible when restarting, because that seems to kill any
remaining processes, but I don't think this is the right thing to do.
I guess calling service_enter_dead() is not enough, but I don't know what
to do instead.
