Subjecttickle nmi watchdog whilst doing serial writes.
This was fun. I inserted a music CD with some obnoxious copy-protection
on it into the drive, and lots of SCSI errors went zipping over to
the serial console. Unfortunatly, the box was also compiling a kernel,
playing oggs, and doing a number of other things at the same time,
so this happened..

We *could* tickle it less often, but given we're busy waiting anyway
it probably doesnt make sense to not favour the more simple approach.
Hmm, maybe we want a cpu_relax() in there too. opinions?
