    [PATCH] x86-64: x86_64 make NMI use PERFCTR1 for architectural perfmon 
(take 2)
    
    Hello,
    
    This patch against 2.6.20-git14 makes the NMI watchdog use PERFSEL1/PERFCTR1
    instead of PERFSEL0/PERFCTR0 on processors supporting Intel architectural
    perfmon, such as Intel Core 2. Although all PMU events can work on
    both counters, the Precise Event-Based Sampling (PEBS) requires that the
    event be in PERFCTR0 to work correctly (see section 18.14.4.1 in the
    IA32 SDM Vol 3b). This versions has 3 chunks compared to previous where
    we had missed on check.
    
    Changelog:
            - make the x86-64 NMI watchdog use PERFSEL1/PERFCTR1 instead of 
PERFSEL0/PERFCTR0
              on processors supporting the Intel architectural perfmon (e.g. 
Core 2 Duo).
              This allows PEBS to work when the NMI watchdog is active.
