Re: [RFC] x86: merge nmi_32-64 to nmi.c

Btw, if someone is still watching this thread - I've found a bit strange
behaviour of nmi on 32bit platform. Look, we have

nmi_watchdog = NMI_DEFAULT

by default which is the alias to NMI_DISABLED. Then lets assume that
user put some option on command line, say for example he passes something
like that


which set it to

nmi_watchdog = NMI_LOCAL_APIC

with only that option passed we have sysfs entry created
but I can't figure out why in proc_nmi_enabled() we have this

if (nmi_watchdog == NMI_DEFAULT) {
if (lapic_watchdog_ok())
nmi_watchdog = NMI_LOCAL_APIC;
nmi_watchdog = NMI_IO_APIC;

it seems it just _dont need_ at and could be safetly removed.
Did I miss something?
