Subject[PATCH] watchdog: imx2_wdt: restore previous timeout after suspend+resume
When the watchdog device is suspended, its timeout is set to the maximum
value. During resume, the previously set timeout should be restored.
This does not work at the moment.

The suspend function calls

imx2_wdt_set_timeout(wdog, IMX2_WDT_MAX_TIME);

and resume reverts this by calling

imx2_wdt_set_timeout(wdog, wdog->timeout);

However, imx2_wdt_set_timeout() updates wdog->timeout. Therefore,
wdog->timeout is set to IMX2_WDT_MAX_TIME when we enter the resume

Fix this by setting wdog->timeout to the previous value at the end of
the suspend function. This manual update makes wdog->timeout different
from the actual setting in the hardware. This should be ok in our case
as kernel code is not running while we're suspended.
