x86: nmi - nmi_watchdog boot param docs cleanup
Impact: documentation update 1) nmi_watchdog boot parameter is common to 32/64 bit modes. So move it from Documentation/x86/x86_64/boot-options.txt to Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt and integrate with. 2) Also fix [panic] keyword placement -- it ought to be at first position otherwise it will not be recognized. 3) Document lapic and ioapic keywords.

Report when timer interrupts are lost because some code turned off

- nmi_watchdog=NUMBER[,panic]
- NUMBER can be:
- 0 don't use an NMI watchdog
- 1 use the IO-APIC timer for the NMI watchdog
- 2 use the local APIC for the NMI watchdog using a performance counter. Note
- This will use one performance counter and the local APIC's performance
- vector.
- When panic is specified panic when an NMI watchdog timeout occurs.
- This is useful when you use a panic=... timeout and need the box
- quickly up again.
Don't use the HPET timer.
