Subject[patch 20/29] lockup_detector/sysctl: Get rid of the ifdeffery
The sysctl of the nmi_watchdog file prevents writes by setting
min = max = 0

if none of the users is enabled. That involves ifdeffery and is competely
non obvious.

If none of the facilities is enabeld, then the file can simply be made read
only. Move the ifdeffery into the header and use a constant for file
permissions.
