This looks fairly generic. For example, the Mediatek driver also stops
and starts (but also pings after starting). Grepping for 'active' in
drivers/watchdog/ finds more examples. Could there be some functions in
watchdog core that do the common things like watchdog_stop() and
watchdog_start() and watchdog_start_and_ping()? Or maybe a bit can be
set during registration so that the 'struct class watchdog_class' can
get PM ops to stop and start on suspend/resume of the watchdog character
device?

Nothing is wrong with the patch, I'm just bemoaning the amount of code
duplication here.
