stop_machine: Touch_nmi_watchdog() after MULTI_STOP_PREPARE

Suppose that stop_machine(fn) hangs because fn() hangs. In this case NMI
hard-lockup can be triggered on another CPU which does nothing wrong and
the trace from nmi_panic() won't help to investigate the problem.

And this change "fixes" the problem we (seem to) hit in practice.

 - stop_two_cpus(0, 1) races with show_state_filter() running on CPU_0.

 - CPU_1 already spins in MULTI_STOP_PREPARE state, it detects the soft
   lockup and tries to report the problem.

 - show_state_filter() enables preemption, CPU_0 calls multi_cpu_stop()
   which goes to MULTI_STOP_DISABLE_IRQ state and disables interrupts.

 - CPU_1 spends more than 10 seconds trying to flush the log buffer to
   the slow serial console.

 - NMI interrupt on CPU_0 (which now waits for CPU_1) calls nmi_panic().
