[patch V2 02/29] perf/x86/intel: Sanitize PMU HT bug workaround




From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

The lockup_detector_suspend/resume() interface is broken in several ways
especially as it results in recursive locking of the CPU hotplug lock.

Use the new stop/restart interface in the perf NMI watchdog to temporarily
disable and reenable the already active watchdog events. That's enough to
handle it.
