Subject[PATCH 4/4] watchdog: configure nmi watchdog period based on watchdog_thresh
Date
Before the conversion of the NMI watchdog to perf event, the watchdog
timeout was 5 seconds. Now it is 60 seconds. For my particular application,
netbooks, 5 seconds was a better timeout. With a short timeout, we
catch faults earlier and are able to send back a panic. With a 60 second
timeout, the user is unlikely to wait and will instead hit the power
button, causing us to lose the panic info.

This change configures the NMI period based on the watchdog_thresh.
