Subject[24/27] oprofile, x86: Fix crash when unloading module (nmi timer mode)
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Robert Richter <robert.richter@amd.com>

commit 97f7f8189fe54e3cfe324ef9ad35064f3d2d3bff upstream.

If oprofile uses the nmi timer interrupt there is a crash while
unloading the module. The bug can be triggered with oprofile build as
module and kernel parameter nolapic set. This patch fixes this.

oprofile: using NMI timer interrupt.
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000008
