    Uhh, I don't have the faintest idea why this happens or how to debug it.

    A simple
    echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
    echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online

    produces the following kernel log (netconsole) and then after a couple
    second hang the machine reboots:

    [ 84.678357] console [netcon0] enabled
    [ 84.679568] netconsole: network logging started
    [ 232.812335] CPU 1 is now offline
    [ 232.812678] lockdep: fixing up alternatives.
    [ 232.813051] SMP alternatives: switching to UP code
    [ 268.447582] lockdep: fixing up alternatives.
    [ 268.447903] SMP alternatives: switching to SMP code
    [ 268.459462] Booting processor 1/1 ip 6000

    My kernel is sched-devel/latest git tree with Desnoyers' patch, and my
    patches that touch only arch/x86/mm/mmio-mod.c.
    The machine is Thinkpad T61 with:
