After a recent change introduced by Vlastimil's series [0], kernel is
able now to handle sysctl parameters on kernel command line; also, the
series introduced a simple infrastructure to convert legacy boot
parameters (that duplicate sysctls) into sysctl aliases.

This patch converts the watchdog parameters softlockup_panic and
{hard,soft}lockup_all_cpu_backtrace to use the new alias infrastructure.
It fixes the documentation too, since the alias only accepts values 0
or 1, not the full range of integers. We also took the opportunity here
to improve the documentation of the previously converted hung_task_panic
(see the patch series [0]) and put the alias table in alphabetical order.

This patch is based on linux-next/akpm branch, at d0f3f6070c3a. Thanks
in advance for reviews!

We have a lot of sysctls.  What is the motivation for converting these
particular ones?

No stronger motivation than a regular clean-up - I just liked the
infrastructure provided by Vlastmil and thought in using it. I know we
have plenty of sysctls, but not all of them have identical/duplicate
boot params, so I went with the obvious ones, that I use more.
Cheers,

Guilherme

Ah, so I did miss some, as the Documentation file doesn't mention there is also
a sysctl for those parameters. Maybe it should?

Anyway, thanks.

It's not converting sysctls, it's converting legacy boot parameters that have a
sysctl counterpart. There's not a lot of those, and new ones shouldn't be added
with the generic infrastructure in place. I would have converted them myself if
I found them :)
