x86, nmi_watchdog: Remove ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG and rely on CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR
The x86 arch has shifted its use of the nmi_watchdog from a local implementation to the global one provide by kernel/watchdog.c. This shift has caused a whole bunch of compile problems under different config options. I attempt to simplify things with the patch below. In order to simplify things, I had to come to terms with the meaning of two terms ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG and CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR. Basically they mean the same thing, the former on a local level and the latter on a global level. With the old x86 nmi watchdog gone, there is no need to rely on defining the ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG variable because it doesn't make sense any more. x86 will now use the global implementation. The changes below do a few things. First it changes the few places that relied on ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG to use CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC (the former was an alias for the latter anyway, so nothing unusual here). Those pieces of code were relying more on local apic functionality the nmi watchdog functionality, so the change should make sense. Second, I removed the x86 implementation of touch_nmi_watchdog(). It isn't need now, instead x86 will rely on kernel/watchdog.c's implementation. Third, I removed the #define ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG itself from x86. And tweaked the include/linux/nmi.h file to tell users to look for an externally defined touch_nmi_watchdog in the case of ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG _or_ CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR. This changes removes some of the ugliness in that file. Finally, I added a Kconfig dependency for CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR that said you can't have ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG _and_ CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR. You can only have one nmi_watchdog. Tested with ARCH=i386: allnoconfig, defconfig, allyesconfig, (various broken configs) ARCH=x86_64: allnoconfig, defconfig, allyesconfig, (various broken configs) Hopefully, after this patch I won't get any more compile broken emails. :-) v3: changed a couple of 'linux/nmi.h' -> 'asm/nmi.h' to pick-up correct function prototypes when CONFIG_HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR is not set.
