From: Don Zickus on
Ingo provided me a config that fails to compile with

arch/x86/built-in.o: In function `arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace':
(.text+0x17e78): undefined reference to `apic'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

I realized I changed the compile behaviour of the nmi code by not wrapping
it with CONFIG_LOCAL_APIC. To fix this I add a compile check for
ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG around arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace.
