Subject[PATCH v2 3/5] kernel/watchdog_hld: Ensure CPU-bound context when creating hardlockup detector event
Date
From: Pingfan Liu <kernelfans@gmail.com>

hardlockup_detector_event_create() should create perf_event on the
current CPU. Preemption could not get disabled because
perf_event_create_kernel_counter() allocates memory. Instead,
the CPU locality is achieved by processing the code in a per-CPU
bound kthread.

Add a check to prevent mistakes when calling the code in another
code path.
