Looking back at your earlier email, I see the following:

[Wed Jan 4 10:19:12 2017] rcu_sched kthread starved for 60004 jiffies! g61967937 c61967936 f0x0 s3 ->state=0x1

That indicates that the task "rcu_sched" isn't being allowed to run.
The "->state=0x1" indicates that this task is currently asleep and the
"s3" indicates that it is looking to start a grace period, but has not
progressed through this task. My guess is that your system get very
busy, and that rcu_sched's normal scheduling priority is not sufficient
for it to be allowed to run.

I therefore suggest that you try raising the rcu_sched task's priority.

You can find this task like this:

ps -ef | grep rcu_sched

On my laptop, I get this:

$ ps -ef | grep rcu_sched
root 7 2 0 Apr11 ? 00:19:19 [rcu_sched]
paulmck 18307 22926 0 06:11 pts/35 00:00:00 grep --color=auto rcu_sche

You can use the chrt command to set the priority. For example, given that
on my laptop, rcu_sched is PID 7:

sudo chrt -f -p 1 7

You can double-check as follows:

$ chrt -p 7
pid 7's current scheduling policy: SCHED_FIFO
pid 7's current scheduling priority: 1

Does that help?

Thanx, Paul
