> BUG: NMI Watchdog detected LOCKUP on CPU0, eip c014ce9c, registers:

I suspect it is just because his console is too slow and then unwinding
took too long and it happened to hit the unwinder. 

You did use a slow console, right?

I suppose it just needs a strategic touch_nmi_watchdog. Will add that.

Hmpf. I saw it once in child_rip here too. Then I wanted to reproduce it to report
properly and couldn't again. I had a few other backtraces that were all non stuck
with child_rip then on essentially the same kernel. Something weird is going on.

Now that is weird. Never seen before. Jan, any ideas?

What is your gcc/compiler, Michal?


Were there any strange binutils in use, Michal?
