[PATCH] watchdog: mpc8xx_wdt: Allow selection of watchdog mode through environment

From: Charles Frey <charles.frey at c-s.fr>

The mpc8xx watchdog can work either in 'reset mode' or 'NMI mode'.
The selection can be done at startup only.
It is desirable to select the mode without rebuilding U-boot.
It is also desirable to disable the watchdog without rebuilding.

At watchdog startup, check environment variable 'watchdog_mode'.
If it is 'off', the watchdog is not started. If it is 'nmi',
the watchdog is started in NMI mode. Otherwise, it is started
in reset mode which is the default mode.
