indeed, and we've been using __raw interface before (2.6.18)

void touch_softlockup_watchdog(void)
{
__raw_get_cpu_var(touch_timestamp) = jiffies;
}

I think it's fine to use __get_cpu_var in touch_nmi_watchdog (which should not
be called with irq enabled since it ticks anyway then, at least on x86) for hardware
nmi watchdog, can't conclude anything about softlockup (except that we had __raw
interface before) since I'm not familiar with soflockup watchdog at moment.
