This command disables NMI-entry. If NMI source has been previously shared
with a serial console ("debug port"), this effectively releases the port
from KDB exclusive use, and makes the console available for normal use.

Of course, NMI can be reenabled, enable_nmi modparam is used for that:

	echo 1 > /sys/module/kdb/parameters/enable_nmi

Based on what I commented in the 01/11 patch, we don't want to register a command if the architecture doesn't actually have it, because it just leads to confusion.

It needs to have an "if"

if (arch_kgdb_ops->enable_nmi) {

}
