What's the right way to extend your work in order to get a NMI-like
watchdog hard lockup detector similar to the one on x86?

I'm testing your patches on Exynos4412 and I guess in their current
state they don't go quite this deep, as the only callers of
trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() are sysrq, hung_task and spinlock debug
code - none of which seem as fail-safe as a trigger like a
pre-programmed watchdog NMI interrupt would be.

Do I need to find a way to get CONFIG_FIQ available on this platform
