[PATCH 6/8] x86: APIC/SMP: Downgrade the NMI watchdog for "nosmp"

From: Maciej W. Rozycki
Date: Wed May 21 2008 - 17:13:25 EST

If configured to use the I/O APIC, the NMI watchdog is deemed to fail if
the chip has been deactivated as a result of "nosmp". Downgrade to the
local APIC watchdog similarly to what is done for the UP case.
