Subject[PATCH v2 1/1] ppc/crash: Skip spinlocks during crash
Date
During a crash, there is chance that the cpus that handle the NMI IPI
are holding a spin_lock. If this spin_lock is needed by crashing_cpu it
will cause a deadlock. (rtas_lock and printk logbuf_log as of today)

This is a problem if the system has kdump set up, given if it crashes
for any reason kdump may not be saved for crash analysis.

Skip spinlocks after NMI IPI is sent to all other cpus.
