There were a few features enabled at the time of the Baikal-T1 SoC DW WDT
IP synthesis, which weren't taken into account in the DW WDT driver available
in the kernel. First of all the SoC engineers synthesized the watchdog core
with WDT_USE_FIX_TOP set to false (don't really know why, but they did).
Due to this the timer reset values weren't fixed as the driver expected
but were initialized with a pre-defined values selected by the engineers.
Secondly the driver expected that the watchdog APB bus and the timer had
synchronous reference clocks, while Baikal-T1 SoC DW WDT was created with
asynchronous ones. So the driver should enable two clock devices: APB bus
clocks and a separate timer reference clock. Finally DW Watchdog Timer is
capable of generating a pre-timeout interrupt if corresponding config is
enabled. The problem was that the pre-timeout IRQ happens when the set
timeout elapses, while the actual WDT expiration and subsequent reboot take
place in the next timeout. This makes the pre-timeout functionality
implementation a bit tricky, since in this case we would have to find a
WDT timeout twice smaller the requested timeout. All of the changes described
above are provided by the patches in this patchset.

In addition traditionally we replaced the legacy plain text-based dt-binding
file with yaml-based one, made some cleanups in the watchdog core code (just
replaced time-unit numerical literals with corresponding macro) and added
DebugFS nodes to ease the driver debug procedure.

This patchset is rebased and tested on the mainline Linux kernel 5.6-rc4:
commit 98d54f81e36b ("Linux 5.6-rc4").
