Thanks for spotting this. I'll send a fix for next.

I don't think x86 uses the IRQ framework for NMIs and probably have
their own thing to count NMIs.

The issue is that we cannot take the desc lock so I'm not sure it would
be safe to increment the desc->tot_count in NMI context (although
technically NMI IRQ lines cannot be shared, so I think it should be fine
for non-percpu_nmis). The other concern is incrementing the percpu
kstat.irqs_sum, which I guess is a definite *no* in an NMI context as we
could have interrupted and interrupt trying to increment that same counter.

So we might be able to establish some kstat_incr_nmi to update some of
the counters but it might require a bit more reflexion on the matter, so
I'd like to avoid adding that as a "quick fix" in next which might end
up breaking things.

Thanks,
