    The problem is actually worse than this description suggests. I updated
    the bugzilla entry now.

    The new smp_call_function() that is called from panic is quite unsuitable
    for this task:
    - It allocates memory (not a good idea in panic0
    - It complains about interrupt off
    - This whole thing breaks at least machine checks
