I saw something similar on a bare metal hardware. Also tried the suggested
patch here and no luck. Panic stack attached with
(sorry, my system has 192 cpus and somehow putting 184 cpus offline causes
system hang without any message...)

My script created the core cookie for two different process groups.
The one is for sysbench cpu, the other is for sysbench mysql,
mysqld(cookie=0) is
also on the same machine. The number of tasks in each category is the same as
the number of CPUs on the system. And cookie is created just during task

Please let me know if the script is needed, I'll push it to github
with some cleanup.
