Subject[PATCH] Revert nmi_known_cpu() check during boot option parsing

The patch
http://www.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=f2802e7f571c05f9a901b1f5bd144aa730ccc88e
and another subsequent patch adds nmi_known_cpu() check while parsing boot
options in x86_64 and i386. With that, "nmi_watchdog=2" stops working for me
on Intel Core 2 CPU based system.

The problem is, setup_nmi_watchdog is called while parsing the boot option
and identify_cpu is not done yet. So, the return value of nmi_known_cpu()
is not valid at this point.

Revert that check. Should not have any adverse effect as nmi_known_cpu() check
is done again later in enable_lapic_nmi_watchdog().
