Subject[PATCH] [45/48] x86_64: Inhibit machine from asserting an NMI when doing Alt-SysRq-M operation.
Date

From: Konrad Rzeszutek <konrad@darnok.org>
This patch touches the NMI watchdog every MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES
to inhibit the machine from triggering an NMI while the CPUs
are locked. This situation is happening on boxes with more
than 64CPUs and 128GB of RAM when Alt-SysRq-m is performed.

It has been succesfully tested for regression on uni, 2, 4, 8
32, and 64 CPU boxes with various memory configuration.

Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de>
