Subject[PATCH 2/3] x86, nmi: Add new NMI queues to deal with IO_CHK and SERR
Date
In discussions with Thomas Mingarelli about hpwdt, he explained to me some
issues they were some when using their virtual NMI button to test the
hpwdt driver.

It turns out the virtual NMI button used on HP's machines do no send
unknown NMIs but instead send IO_CHK NMIs. The way the kernel code
is written, the hpwdt driver can not register itself against that type
of NMI and therefore can not successfully capture system information
before panic'ing.

To solve this I created two new NMI queues to allow driver to register
against the IO_CHK and SERR NMIs. Or in the hpwdt all three (if you
include unknown NMIs too).

The change is straightforward and just mimics what the unknown NMI does.
