softlockup: allow panic on lockup

allow users to configure the softlockup detector to generate a panic
instead of a warning message.

high-availability systems might opt for this strict method (combined
with panic_timeout= boot option/sysctl), instead of generating
softlockup warnings ad infinitum.

also, automated tests work better if the system reboots reliably (into
a safe kernel) in case of a lockup.

The full spectrum of configurability is supported: boot option, sysctl
option and Kconfig option.

it's default-disabled.

Say Y here to enable the kernel to panic on "soft lockups",
which are bugs that cause the kernel to loop in kernel
mode for more than 60 seconds, without giving other tasks a
chance to run.
The panic can be used in combination with panic_timeout,
to cause the system to reboot automatically after a
lockup has been detected. This feature is useful for
high-availability systems that have uptime guarantees and
where a lockup must be resolved ASAP.
Say N if unsure.
