[PATCH linux dev-4.13 20/23] watchdog: aspeed: Retain watchdog enabled state

An unintended post-condition of probe() is that the watchdog is
disabled. This behaviour was introduced by an unnecessary write to the
control register to configure the hardware based on the devicetree. The
write is unnecessary because the cached control value that is
manipulated by the code parsing the devicetree is eventually written by
aspeed_wdt_enable(), which is when we care how the control register
should be configured.

Remove the write to restore expected behaviour.
