Ingo,

the patch below addresses this. Please apply to tip/perf/urgent.

Subject: [PATCH] arch/x86/oprofile/op_model_amd.c: perform initialisation on a single CPU

Disable preemption in init_ibs(). The function only checks the ibs
capabilities and sets up pci devices (if necessary). It runs only on
one cpu but operates with the local APIC and some MSRs, thus it is
better to disable preemption.
