I spent some more time looking at this. It appears that nr_online_cpus isn't
always updated properly. I added an extra pr_warn() when the failure happens
and I got:

[ 22.369815] Restarting system.
[ 23.506792] SMP: failed to stop secondary CPUs
[ 23.511535] running on CPU: 3, still online: 2, mask: 8

I also did some function tracing and all CPUs besides the one initiating the
halt reach platform_cpu_kill() about 50us after sending the IPIs to stop them.
The set_cpu_online() call in ipi_cpu_stop() should update nr_online_cpus, but
somehow this doesn't always happen. Any insight on what might be going on?

Instrumentation patch attached.

Cheers,

Peter.
