The bd70528 watchdog driver is probed by MFD driver. Add MODULE_ALIAS
in order to allow udev to load the module when MFD sub-device cell for
watchdog is added.

Fixes: bbc88a0ec9f37 ("watchdog: bd70528: Initial support for ROHM BD70528 watchdog block")

I'm not really sure if this is a bug-fix or feature but I guess the
Fixes tag won't harm, right?
