Some watchdog devices might conditionally support pretimeouts (e.g. if
an interrupt is exposed for the device) but some watchdog drivers might
still define the set_pretimeout operation (e.g. the mtk_wdt driver) and
indicate support at runtime through the WDIOF_PRETIMEOUT flag. If the
kernel is compiled with CONFIG_WATCHDOG_HRTIMER_PRETIMEOUT enabled,
watchdog_set_pretimeout would run the driver specific set_pretimeout
even if WDIOF_PRETIMEOUT is not set which might have unintended

So this change checks that the device flags and only runs the driver
operation if pretimeouts are supported.
