dsmetool can be used to provide a watchdog/lifeguard for the started
process. It you get a reboot loop, it means that the process always
crashes (or forks and the parent exits) and dsmetool reboots the device.
(It has command line help, and there are some examples in
/etc/osso-af-init directory.) If you don't want the watchdog, you can
start the process without dsmetool, or with the '-o' option of dsmetool.
