[Xen-devel] [PATCH v3 0/3] A few VPMU/watchdog-related patches

Changes in v3:
* Moved opt_watchdog check into initcall

Changes in v2:
* Added NMI cleanup patch
* Disaple VPMU in vpmu_initialise() instead of doing it in options parsing 
* Update documentation by mentioning that VPMU doesn't work with watchdog
* Drop some sign-off area tags

The first patch is a light cleanup of nmi_watchdog usage.

The second patch is to disable VPMU when watchdog is on since both are using
APIC_LVTPC register and VPMU, when running, will overwrite watchdog's settings.

The last patch is update to the earlier (reverted) commit 8097616. We prevent
guests's updates to APIC_LVTPC when VPMU is disabled. Without this a guest may
redirect a watchdog interrupt to VPMU which will not be able to handle it.

  x86/VPMU: Disable VPMU when NMI watchdog is on
  x86/VPMU: Handle APIC_LVTPC accesses
