I have one question:

* 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()).
