Subject[BUG] CPU hotplug reboots machine (Re: [PATCH] Fix SMP alternatives : use mutex instead of spinlock, text_poke is sleepable)

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:

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks.
