If the first part of the expression is always false, the second
part should not even be evaluated. Either case, the code now
hard depends on the compiler optimizing the code away.
It calls devm_watchdog_register_device() which doesn't exist
if CONFIG_WATCHDOG is not enabled. I didn't know that this is safe,
and I would personally not want to rely on it, but we live and
learn.
