Okay now that we all agree, let me repost a patch with the updated
changelog, this fits on top of tip/master.

x86 smp_ops now has a new op, stop_other_cpus which takes a parameter "wait"
this allows the caller to specify if it wants to stop until all the cpus
have processed the stop IPI. This is required specifically for the kexec case
where we should wait for all the cpus to be stopped before starting the new
kernel.
We now wait for the cpus to stop in all cases except for panic where we expect
things to be broken and we are doing our best to make things work anyway.
