There is still a problem. When running

echo 6 > /proc/sys/kernel/watchdog_thresh
echo 5 > /proc/sys/kernel/watchdog_thresh

repeatedly, the message

NMI watchdog: Enabled. Permanently consumes one hw-PMU counter.

stops after a while (after ~10-30 iterations, with fluctuations).
After adding trace messages into hardlockup_detector_perf_disable()
and hardlockup_detector_perf_enable(), I see:

hardlockup_detector_perf_disable: disable(0): Number of CPUs: 3
hardlockup_detector_perf_disable: disable(1): Number of CPUs: 2
hardlockup_detector_perf_disable: disable(2): Number of CPUs: 1
hardlockup_detector_perf_disable: disable(3): Number of CPUs: 0
...
hardlockup_detector_perf_disable: disable(0): Number of CPUs: 2
hardlockup_detector_perf_disable: disable(1): Number of CPUs: 1
hardlockup_detector_perf_disable: disable(2): Number of CPUs: 0
hardlockup_detector_perf_disable: disable(3): Number of CPUs: -1
...
hardlockup_detector_perf_enable: enable(1): Number of CPUs: -6
hardlockup_detector_perf_enable: enable(3): Number of CPUs: -5
hardlockup_detector_perf_enable: enable(2): Number of CPUs: -4
hardlockup_detector_perf_enable: enable(0): Number of CPUs: -3

Maybe watchdog_cpus needs to be atomic ?
