I think Jack might need to setup priority for his notifier, like

static struct notifier_block uv_dump_stack_nmi_nb = {
.notifier_call = uv_handle_nmi,
.priority = NMI_LOCAL_HIGH_PRIOR+1,
};
so it would be called before perf nmi. Don, am I right?

Since for perf nmis we do have

static __read_mostly struct notifier_block perf_event_nmi_notifier = {
.notifier_call = perf_event_nmi_handler,
.next = NULL,
.priority = NMI_LOCAL_LOW_PRIOR,
};
