Subject[PATCH 0/3] x86: Fix panic vs. NMI issues
From
Date
When an HA cluster software or administrator detects non-response
of a host, they issue an NMI to the host to completely stop current
works and take a crash dump. If the kernel has already panicked
or is capturing a crash dump at that time, further NMI can cause
a crash dump failure.

To solve this issue, this patch set does two things:

- Don't panic on NMI if the kernel has already panicked
- Introduce "noextnmi" boot option which masks external NMI at the
boot time (supported only for x86)
