Could you please try the patch at the following URL (from Thomas
Gleixner)?

http://www.rdrop.com/users/paulmck/patches/2.6.27-rc7-tglx-timer-1.patch

This fixed some CPU hotplug hangs that I was seeing in 2.6.27-rc7 and
-rc8. Alternatively, try 2.6.27-rc9, which seems to include Thomas's
patch.

Thanx, Paul
