Subject[PATCH] [PATCH]: Reset clocksource watchdog after sysrq-t
Date
When doing a sysrq-t other processes are starved out because the task_list
lock is held. On a large enough system this means that the clocksource
watchdog does not fire for a long time and when system operation resumes the
watchdog erroneously marks the current clocksource as unstable.

Reset the clocksource watchdog after show_state_filter() has dumped the
task states.
