From what I can gather, Kodi is running within LightDM/Openbox so the only way to get Kodi back up is to restart LightDM - but that's beyond the capabilities of my wife if I'm not at home.
When I used a systemd service for Kodi, it would automatically restart on crash, but now I've moved to the LightDM/Openbox method of launching Kodi, I have no idea how to automatically respawn Kodi (or relaunch LightDM) if/when Kodi crashes.
For me when Kodi crashes it just takes me back to the login screen, and if I log back in with the kodi user (no password, so I just hit Enter on my keyboard) it launches back into a Kodi/Openbox session (since that was the last used session)
I decided to use ppa:team-xbmc/unstable for the Kodi install, so I can say this works pretty reliably after every crash lol
Oh yeah, I forgot I had to delete the password on the Kodi user manually before it would let me log back in
sudo passwd [USER] -d
