The registers are not a subset of watchdog hardware it's SoC specific future
controlled by SoC specific registers (bootregs and PLL regs).

For watchog IP setup, the Keystone uses the watchdog driver common with
SoCs -- davinci_watchdog that is not depend on other SoC settings like
this driver does.

The Keystone SoCs have separate registers to tune Keystone2 reset
by configuring Reset multiplexer & PLL. And it tunes not only watchdog
The keystone SoC can be rebooted in several ways. By external reset pin,
by soft and
by watchdogs. This driver allows software reset or reset by one of the
(and other settings) independently on watchdog driver settings. This is
job of reset driver.

WDT doesn't overlap with this driver.
