[PATCH v3 1/2] drivers/watchdog: Add optional ASPEED device tree properties

Describe device tree optional properties:

  * aspeed,arm-reet - ARM CPU reset on signal
  * aspeed,no-soc-reset - SOC reset on signal
  * aspeed,no-sys-reset - System reset on signal
  * aspeed,interrupt - Interrupt CPU on signal
  * aspeed,external-signal - Generate external signal (WDT1 and WDT2 only)
  * aspeed,alt-boot - Boot from alternate block on signal

Signed-off-by: Christopher Bostic <cbostic at linux.vnet.ibm.com>
v3 - Invert soc and sys reset to 'no' to preserve backwards
     compatibility.  SOC and SYS reset will be set by default
     without any optional parameters set
v2 - Add 'aspeed,' prefix to all optional properties
   - Add arm-reset, soc-reset, interrupt, alt-boot properties
