watchdog: mtx1-wdt: fix GPIO toggling

Commit e391be76 (MIPS: Alchemy: Clean up GPIO registers and accessors)
changed the way the GPIO was toggled. Prior to this patch, we would
always actively drive the GPIO output to either 0 or 1, this patch
drove the GPIO active to 0, and put the GPIO in tristate to drive it
to 1, unfortunately this does not work, revert back to active driving.

Using a signed variable (gstate) to hold the gpio state and using a bit-
wise operation on it also resulted in toggling value from 1 to -2 since
the variable is signed. This value was then passed on to gpio_direction_
output, which always perform a if (value) ... to set the value to the
gpio, so we were always writing a 1 to this GPIO instead of 1 -> 0 -> 1 ...
