[PATCH] ipmi: fix watchdog timeout panic handling

If a panic came from the IPMI watchdog pretimeout and that was reported via
an NMI, it would also be reported via the standard IPMI flags, which would
get picked up when reporting panic events and cause another panic.  This
adds an atomic to avoid calling panic twice.
