Overall looks good to me, though we really need feedback from the DT folks
on the binding. There is a parallel effort to add this functionality into
the watchdog core, meaning the proposed binding "'always-enabled' will
very likely find its way into other drivers. We'll also need a separate
binding to express "watchdog can not be stopped after started once".
That is a separate issue, but important to keep in mind when discussing
the bindings.

Thanks,
Guenter
