watchdog: introduce the proc_watchdog_update() function

This series introduces a separate handler for each watchdog parameter in
/proc/sys/kernel.  The separate handlers need a common function that they
can call to update the run state of the lockup detectors, or to have the
lockup detectors use a new sample period.
