Subject[PATCH 8/8] [watchdog] separate touch_nmi_watchdog code path from touch_watchdog
Date
When I combined the nmi_watchdog (hardlockup) and softlockup code, I
also combined the paths the touch_watchdog and touch_nmi_watchdog took.
This may not be the best idea as pointed out by Frederic W., that the
touch_watchdog case probably should not reset the hardlockup count.

Therefore the patch belows falls back to the previous idea of keeping
the touch_nmi_watchdog a superset of the touch_watchdog case.
