I believe I have experienced this as well, and I tried to debug it
with Peter Zijlstra (Cc added).

I only managed to get this message once. But I made a patch that could
help us debug this, see

commit 8d5be7f4e8515af461cbc8f07687ccc81507d508
Date: Wed Jun 25 08:50:10 2008 +0200

softlockup: show irqtrace

from the core/softlockup branch in the -tip tree. (This commit is also
present in tip/master.)

In order to see the effect of this, you need CONFIG_TRACE_IRQFLAGS=y.
This will tell us when/where irqs were last disabled and will
hopefully give a hint of where the block is really occurring. (Unless
it is already obvious to you or others; it isn't to me :-))

Thanks,


Vegard
