cat /proc/kpagecount produces similar symptoms. box is locked - sysrq-w sshd trace:

__down
__down_interruptible
kobject_get
lock_kernel
chrdev_open
__dentry_open
nameidata_to_filp
open_pathname
do_sys_open
sparc32_open
linux_sparc_syscall32

then again:

BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 11s! [sshd:3242]
...
TPC: spitfire_xcall_helper+0xa0/0x100
...
RPC: spitfire_xcall_helper+0xac/0x100
...
I7: flush_dcache_page_all+0x1a4/0x1e0

or:

BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 11s! [sshd:3242]
...
TPC: tick_get_tick+0xc/0x20
...
RPC: __handle_softirq_continue+0x20/0x24
...
I7: __delay+0x2c/0x60

Box is unusable. Easy to reproduce - every time.

Regards,

Mariusz
