hugetlb: add locking for overcommit sysctl

When I replaced hugetlb_dynamic_pool with nr_overcommit_hugepages I used
proc_doulongvec_minmax() directly.  However, hugetlb.c's locking rules
require that all counter modifications occur under the hugetlb_lock.  Add a
callback into the hugetlb code similar to the one for nr_hugepages.  Grab
the lock around the manipulation of nr_overcommit_hugepages in
proc_doulongvec_minmax().
