I'm getting the watchdog errors as well, on a T520 laptop, was curious of the
solution too, but haven't had time to look into it... maybe something to do with
Thinkpads?

I'm also getting the watchdog errors, not on a laptop. But mine says NMI
watchdog disabled: not supported (no LACPI?) FWIW

I was getting errors similar to those on my thinkpad t520 but after some
searching on the forums I added 'blacklist mei' to my modprobe.conf and it
did the trick.

There's some more discussion about this here:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=133083&p=1

It seems fairly harmless, from my reading of this thread, and is to do with
the kernel not supporting more than one watchdog device. You can blacklist one
or the other module if you prefer one watchdog over the other, as far as I
understand it.

Pete.
