SubjectStop machine threads are getting preemted by the rt period enforcement
Peter, Ingo,

Take a look at the report below (came up during isolcpu= remove discussions).

It looks like stop_machine threads are getting forcefully preempted because
they exceed their RT quanta. It's strange because rt period is pretty long.
But given that disabling rt period logic solves the issue the machine was not
really stuck.
