SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC] NMI Re-introduce un[set]_nmi_callback

kdump is a special case, similar to the NMI button panic mode. It should
be always only active when the user configured it. When the user configured
it should be always the fallback and override any other drivers.

But watchdog is a special case. I assume the watchdog will just log
(and do the work that a SMI should be doing) but then continue
the chain so that kdump can dump on a watchdog timeout.
