nmi: add generic nmi tracking state
Steven Rostedt [Fri, 6 Feb 2009 05:51:37 +0000 (00:51 -0500)]
This code adds an in_nmi() macro that uses the current tasks preempt count
to track when it is in NMI context. Other parts of the kernel can
use this to determine if the context is in NMI context or not.

This code was inspired by the -rt patch in_nmi version that was
written by Peter Zijlstra, who borrowed that code from
Mathieu Desnoyers.
