watchdog: sp805: Don't write 0 to the load value register.
At least on the Versatile Express' V2M, calling wdt_disable followed by wdt_enable, for instance by running the following sequence: echo V > /dev/watchdog; echo V > /dev/watchdog results in an immediate reset. The wdt_disable function writes 0 to the load register; while the watchdog interrupts are disabled at this point, this special value is defined to trigger an interrupt immediately. It appears that in this instance, the reset happens when the interrupts are subsequently enabled by wdt_enable. Putting in a short delay after writing a new load value in wdt_enable solves the issue, but it seems cleaner to simply never write 0 to the load register at all: according to the hardware docs, writing 0 to the control register suffices to stop the counter, and the write of 0 to the load register is questionable anyway since this register resets to 0xffffffff.
