Subject[09/18] x86, apic: Enable lapic nmi watchdog on AMD Family 11h
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Mikael Pettersson <mikpe@it.uu.se>
commit 7d1849aff6687a135a8da3a75e32a00e3137a5e2 upstream.

The x86 lapic nmi watchdog does not recognize AMD Family 11h,
resulting in:

NMI watchdog: CPU not supported

As far as I can see from available documentation (the BKDM),
family 11h looks identical to family 10h as far as the PMU
is concerned.

Extending the check to accept family 11h results in:

Testing NMI watchdog ... OK.

I've been running with this change on a Turion X2 Ultra ZM-82
laptop for a couple of weeks now without problems.
