    I have one question:
    + send_IPI_mask(cpumask, INVALIDATE_TLB_VECTOR);
    + while (flush_cpumask)
    + /* nothing. lockup detection does not belong here */;

    * we are running with enabled interrupts, NMI detection won't find the
    * "stuck on TLB IPI wait" messages are quite common - perhaps as common
    as bad hardware ;). I don't think that we can ignore them.
    * it will be easy to add lockup detection: there are 4 function on i386
    that wait for inter processor synchronization (wait_on_irq, wait_on_bh,
    smp_call_function, and flush_tlb_others), and I'm preparing a helper
    function that prints a meaningfull back trace (better than show()).
