Merge branch 'core-watchdog-for-linus' of git://

Pull watchddog clean-up and fixes from Thomas Gleixner:
 "The watchdog (hard/softlockup detector) code is pretty much broken in
  its current state. The patch series addresses this by removing all
  duct tape and refactoring it into a workable state.

  The reasons why I ask for inclusion that late in the cycle are:

   1) The code causes lockdep splats vs. hotplug locking which get
      reported over and over. Unfortunately there is no easy fix.

   2) The risk of breakage is minimal because it's already broken

   3) As 4.14 is a long term stable kernel, I prefer to have working
      watchdog code in that and the lockdep issues resolved. I wouldn't
      ask you to pull if 4.14 wouldn't be a LTS kernel or if the
      solution would be easy to backport.

   4) The series was around before the merge window opened, but then got
      delayed due to the UP failure caused by the for_each_cpu()
      surprise which we discussed recently.

  Changes vs. V1:

   - Addressed your review points

   - Addressed the warning in the powerpc code which was discovered late

   - Changed two function names which made sense up to a certain point
     in the series. Now they match what they do in the end.

   - Fixed a 'unused variable' warning, which got not detected by the
     intel robot. I triggered it when trying all possible related config
     combinations manually. Randconfig testing seems not random enough.

  The changes have been tested by and reviewed by Don Zickus and tested
  and acked by Micheal Ellerman for powerpc"
