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.
