Interesting thanks.

I was trying to figure out a way to add the PERF_EVENTS dependency as I
didn't want to impose it on the CONFIG_NMI_WATCHDOG if that config
supported softlockup (which doesn't need the PERF_EVENTS).

Originally Ingo talked about a migration path, so I was going to support
the older one in case the new one was having issues, sort of like what he
suggested about moving the nmi code from arch/x86/kernel/apic/nmi.c to
kernel/watchdog.c. But I can probably drop the softlockup case as the
migration isn't as tricky as the nmi case.

Yeah, sorry. I dropped part of the code per your suggestion and forget to
update the comments.

sorry, I dropped part of the code and forgot to drop this too.

I was just thinking of the case where dispite the WARN above, the cpu
actually recovered and then failed again separately. But I probably won't
spend anymore time defending it. :-)
