    SubjectRe: IO_APIC NMI Watchdog not handled by suspend/resume.

    When we debated this at x86-64 lists, our conclusion was 'critical
    section should take less than 5 seconds, and watchdog only touches its
    own variables, so stopping it should not be needed'. [on x86-64,
    watchdog is enabled even on up].
