watchdog: da9063: Fix timeout handling during probe

This change “watchdog: da9063: Fix timeout handling during probe” in Linux kernel is authored by Marco Felsch <m.felsch [at]> on Mon May 28 08:45:46 2018 +0200.

watchdog: da9063: Fix timeout handling during probe

The watchdog can be enabled in previous steps (e.g. the bootloader). Set
the driver default timeout value (8s) if the watchdog is already running
and the HW_RUNNING flag. So the watchdog core framework will ping the
watchdog till the user space activates the watchdog explicit with the
desired timeout value.
