Per Randy, I've added an update to Documentation/sysrq.txt and am
resubmitting the patch in the proper style.

This patch adds a convenient function to show all workqueues using the
magic SYSRQ handling. It uses the 'z' key to invoke the function as the
'w' key was already gone.

I've found this very useful in debugging; hopefully others will find it
as useful.
