Interesting. I am assuming that the interrupt in the stack below came
from idle, if not, please let me know what.

Could you please reproduce with CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_INFO=y? That would
give me a bit more information about why RCU thought that there was
a stall. (CCing Becky Bruce, who saw something similar recently.)

Subodh Nijsure (also CCed) reported something that might be similar on
ARM, and also reported that setting the following got rid of the stalls:

CONFIG_CPU_IDLE=y
CONFIG_CPU_IDLE_GOV_LADDER=y
CONFIG_CPU_IDLE_GOV_MENU=y

At which point he was happy, which was good, but which also left the
underlying problem unsolved. Do these affect your system? If so,
do they cause a different ARM idle loop to be executed?

Thanx, Paul
