Subject: [PATCH 3/3] boot: add early NMI counter

From: Fernando Luis Vazquez Cao <fernando@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

We currently ignore early NMIs but it would be nice to be able to
know whether they actually occurred.

This patch adds an early NMI counter, whose count is moved over to
the per-cpu NMI counter before the kernel frees the init sections.
