Subject[PATCH 0/2] x86, reboot: cleanup NMI and REBOOT_IRQ
After dealing with pstore conversations about spin locks, I had an idea
to simplify the native_smp_stop_other_cpus() path by using both REBOOT_IRQ
and NMI instead of using either or.

I also cleaned up a WARN_ON splat from rescheduling.

Tested 10 panics on my core2 quad using 'echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger' and
panic=10 on the commandline. The machine panic'd and rebooted succesfully
all 10 times. Though only the first time did I see the WARN_ON splat, the
other 9 times I couldn't duplicate it.

Don Zickus (2):
x86, reboot: revert stop_other_cpus to using IRQ with NMI fallback
x86, reschedule: check to see if system is shutting down
