add touch_all_softlockup_watchdogs()

Add touch_all_softlockup_watchdogs() to allow the softlockup watchdog
timers on all cpus to be updated.  This is used to prevent sysrq-t from
generating a spurious watchdog message when generating lots of output.

Softlockup watchdogs use sched_clock() as its timebase, which is inherently
per-cpu (at least, when it is measuring unstolen time).  Because of this,
it isn't possible for one CPU to directly update the other CPU's timers,
but it is possible to tell the other CPUs to do update themselves
