This should have a fixes line. The code as it stands in 4.14-rc1
unconditionally disables the watchdog at boot :(

If we go back to before b7f0b8ad25f3 ("drivers/watchdog: ASPEED
reference dev tree properties for config"), the driver set up the
cached ctrl value and then tested the hardware state to decide if we
should have the watchdog enabled.

Looking at the driver now there's little reason to keep the cached
ctrl value. I'd suggest reworking the driver to not have it so we can
avoid bugs like the ones that b7f0b8ad25f3 introduced.

Cheers,

Joel
