If you have a thinkpad and use tlp you can set the NMI watchdog to off

I do have tlp installed. Here's what is in the file. Looks like it's already disabled:

# Kernel NMI Watchdog:
#   0=disable (default, saves power), 1=enable (for kernel debugging only)

also look at /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog to see the state

$ cat /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog

Looks like it's "off" by default. This is strange!
