I really don't like this; it depends on assumptions how the watchdog
core works, and it misuses WDOG_HW_RUNNING to indicate that the clock
is stopped (or that the driver is in suspend mode).

If ping doesn't work with the clock stopped, I think it would be much
better to have a flag indicating that the clock is stopped, and have
the ping function do nothing if it is called with stopped clock
(ie if suspended).
