--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun bh/mark-subtree-done ()
  (let ((limit (point)))
      (while (> (point) limit)
	(org-todo "DONE")
	(outline-previous-visible-heading 1))
      (org-todo "DONE"))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Then M-x bh/mark-subtree-done.

This relies on the subtasks all being visible.  You can enhance it so it
handles folded tasks if needed.
