Subject[PATCH 2/2] x86, reschedule: check to see if system is shutting down
Date
Due to reschedule changes in v3.3, a WARN_ON has popped up
because a cpu suddenly became offline without letting anyone
know.

This results in the schedule trying to move something to another
cpu only to find out it isn't there and getting confused. The splat
looks something like:

I solved this by re-using the atomic global variable that is set during
native_smp_stop_other_cpus(). This is the piece of code that causes the
problem and it sets stopping_cpu to reflect the system is going down.

If the variable is set do not yell with the WARN_ON, just return.
