Sadly both the cpumask changes and the group load-balancer came in the
same batch - so its all new code. Also, it looks like the cpumask
changes are before the load balance changes - so bisecting this will be
'fun'.

That said; the code in question looks like:

static
void aggregate_group_shares(struct task_group *tg, struct sched_domain *sd)
{
unsigned long shares = 0;
int i;
again:
for_each_cpu_mask(i, sd->span)
shares += tg->cfs_rq[i]->shares;

/*
* When the span doesn't have any shares assigned, but does have
* tasks to run do a machine wide rebalance (should be rare).
*/
if (unlikely(!shares && aggregate(tg, sd)->rq_weight)) {
__aggregate_redistribute_shares(tg);
goto again;
}
aggregate(tg, sd)->shares = shares;
}
and the __first_cpu() call is from the for_each_cpu_mask() afaict. and
sd->span should be good - that's not new. So I'm a bit puzzled.

But you say they get wedged - so the above trace is a snapshot (NMI,
sysrq-[tw] or the like) that could also mean they get wedged in this
'again' loop we have here.

I have two patches; the first will stick in a printk() to see if it is
indeed the loop in this function. The second is an attempt at breaking
out of it.

BTW, what does the sched_domain tree look like on that 128-cpu machine?
