watchdog: pcwd_usb: remove unneeded DRIVER_LICENSE #define
There is no need to #define the license of the driver, just put it in the MODULE_LICENSE() line directly as a text string. This allows tools that check that the module license matches the source code license to work properly, as there is no need to unwind the unneeded dereference, especially when it is defined just a few lines above from where it is used.
