watchdog: Disable watchdog when thresh is zero

This restores the previous behavior of softlock_thresh.

Currently, setting watchdog_thresh to zero causes the watchdog
kthreads to consume a lot of CPU.

In addition, the logic of proc_dowatchdog_thresh and
proc_dowatchdog_enabled has been factored into proc_dowatchdog.
