[RFC PATCH 14/30] softirq: Introduce local_bh_disable_all()

As we plan to narrow down local_bh_disable() to a per-vector disablement
granularity, a shortcut can be handy for code that want to disable all
of them and not care about carrying the bh enabled mask state prior to
the call.

(TODO: check that it is called while bh are ALL enabled because
local_bh_enable_all() is going to re-enable ALL of them. Pretty much like
there should be no local_irq_enable() between a pair or local_irq_save()
and local_irq_restore()).
