I believe this patch is not necessary. The BR2_PACKAGE_WDCTL option
indeed existed, but it had never done anything. So if someone had
BR2_PACKAGE_WDCTL enabled in his .config, nothing was happening prior
to 349c9c7fac4bf8cd7d781e8aab6edc47b7ceb7c2 (which renamed the option
to the proper name). And after 349c9c7fac4bf8cd7d781e8aab6edc47b7ceb7c2
has been applied, BR2_PACKAGE_WDCTL continues to do nothing.

Adding Config.in.legacy handling for this is therefore useless.
