Description Prarit Bhargava 2007-11-27 13:52:25 EST
Description of problem:  

From dzickus' LKML post:

Our automated test suite looks for keywords like error, fail, warning in the
boot log.  In the case when the nmi watchdog is determined to be stuck in
check_nmi_watchdog(), none of those keywords are displayed.

This patch adds a keyword, 'Warning, so it makes it easier to notice when the
nmi watchdog isn't working correctly.

Comment 1 Prarit Bhargava 2007-11-27 14:50:39 EST
I've suggested some changes to dzickus so that his patch will pass
Documentation/CodingStyle.

Attached patch is based on those comments.
