When using CONFIG_(SPL_)WDT, the watchdog_reset function is a lot more
complicated than just poking a few SOC-specific registers - it
involves accessing all kinds of global data, and if the interrupt
happens at the wrong time (say, in the middle of an WATCHDOG_RESET()
call from ordinary code), that can end up corrupting said global data.

Also, having WATCHDOG_RESET() called automatically from the timer
interrupt runs counter to the idea of a watchdog device - if the board
runs into an infinite loops with interrupts still enabled, the
watchdog will never fire.

Allow the board to opt out of this behaviour by setting
CONFIG_SYS_WATCHDOG_FREQ to 0 - as that setting is currently
nonsensical, it cannot affect any existing boards.

Add documentation for both the existing and extended meaning of
CONFIG_SYS_WATCHDOG_FREQ.
