Subject2.6.23.8, ondemand scaling governor: "BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!"
Hi folks,

using the ondemand scaling governour I see some error messages
in kern.log, e.g.:

This seems to happen when the load drops below the threshold and
the ondemand governor changes the CPU from 2GHz to 400MHz. If I use
the "performance" governor instead, then there is no such message.
If I set it back to "ondemand", then the message is printed
immediately.
