Looks better.

Did some comments cleanup and nmi_panic() macro reformatting so that it
is more readable and ended up applying this:

Subject: [PATCH] panic, x86: Fix re-entrance problem due to panic on NMI

If panic on NMI happens just after panic() on the same CPU, panic() is
recursively called. Kernel stalls, as a result, after failing to acquire
panic_lock.

To avoid this problem, don't call panic() in NMI context if we've
already entered panic().

For that, introduce nmi_panic() macro to reduce code duplication. In
the case of panic on NMI, don't return from NMI handlers if another CPU
already panicked.
