I agree that adding that 'run' argument was certainly not a piece of
art. Though I disagree with the sentiment that non-functional garbage is
preferrable over functionally correct code which merily contains a bad
implementation choice. Without knowing you for years, it would certainly
seem more rewarding to dump garbage and get it merged, than caring and
mopping up garbage, which should not have been merged in the first
place. Your motivation skills are truly outstanding.

Enough vented. Find below the cure for that major offense.

Thanks,

Subject: watchdog/core, powerpc: Replace watchdog_nmi_reconfigure()
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
Date: Mon, 02 Oct 2017 12:34:50 +0200

The recent cleanup of the watchdog code split watchdog_nmi_reconfigure()
into two stages. One to stop the NMI and one to restart it after
reconfiguration. That was done by adding a boolean 'run' argument to the
function, which is functionally correct but not necessarily a piece of art.

Replace it by two explicit functions: watchdog_nmi_stop() and
watchdog_nmi_start().

Fixes: 6592ad2fcc8f ("watchdog/core, powerpc: Make watchdog_nmi_reconfigure() two stage")
