When there is no NMI, touch_nmi_watchdog() actually touches softlockup
watchdog:

#if defined(ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG) || defined(CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR)
#include <asm/nmi.h>
extern void touch_nmi_watchdog(void);
#else
static inline void touch_nmi_watchdog(void)
{
touch_softlockup_watchdog();
}
#endif
so you need to check if other places calling touch_nmi_watchdog()
especially on ARM.
