The problems started when I first saw CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_TIMEOUT=60
in my configs.

This an old IBM T40p notebook with Pentium-M (Banias) UP processor.
IIRC I have flashed the latest BIOS available for this notebook.

[ 11.786073] thinkpad_acpi: ThinkPad BIOS 1RETDRWW (3.23 ), EC 1RHT71WW-3.04
[ 11.786111] thinkpad_acpi: IBM ThinkPad T40p, model 2374SG6

As I am still sitting in the dark, it would be very helpful to know if
I can play with HZ or RCU kernel-config parameters.
Can I change RCU behaviour from user-space?

P.S.: Note to myself: Read Documentation/RCU/stallwarn.txt & check
possible values in lib/Kconfig.debug
