watchdog: Fix disable/enable regression

Commit 8d45169 ("watchdog: Fix CPU hotplug regression") causes an
oops or hard lockup when doing

 echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
 echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog

and the kernel is booted with nmi_watchdog=1 (default)

Running laptop-mode-tools and disconnecting/connecting AC power will
cause this to trigger, making it a common failure scenario on laptops.

Instead of bailing out of watchdog_disable() when !watchdog_enabled we
can initialize the hrtimer regardless of watchdog_enabled status.  This
makes it safe to call watchdog_disable() in the nmi_watchdog=0 case,
without the negative effect on the enabled => disabled => enabled case.

All these tests pass with this patch:
- nmi_watchdog=1
  echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
  echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog

- nmi_watchdog=0
  echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online

- nmi_watchdog=0
  echo mem > /sys/power/state
