ACPI WDAT table is the preferred way to use hardware watchdog over the
native iTCO_wdt. Windows only uses this table for its hardware watchdog
implementation so we should be relatively safe to trust it has been
validated by OEMs

Prevent iTCO watchdog creation if we detect that there is ACPI WDAT table.
