OK, so a 'modern' kernel does it slightly different and I've no idea
what exactly goes wrong in your vintage version. But I can see the
current stuff going at it all wrong.

What seems to happen is that native_nmi_stop_other_cpus() NMI broadcasts
for smp_stop_nmi_callback()->stop_this_cpu(). Which without any
serialization what so ever marks all remote CPUs offline and calls halt
with IRQs disabled -> dead.

While we're waiting for this all to complete, the scheduler tries to
no_hz load-balance and kick a cpu it thinks is still around and we get
the above splat because the NMI just marked it offline without telling
anybody about it.

Now, arguably you don't want to go through the whole hotplug crap to
shut down your machine, esp not on panic, but clearing the online state
without telling anybody about it is bound to lead to these things.

No immediate solution comes to mind...
