watchdog/hardlockup: Clean up hotplug locking mess

All watchdog thread related functions are delegated to the smpboot thread
infrastructure, which handles serialization against CPU hotplug correctly.

The sysctl interface is completely decoupled from anything which requires
CPU hotplug protection.

No need to protect the sysctl writes against cpu hotplug anymore. Remove it
and add the now required protection to the powerpc arch_nmi_watchdog
implementation.
