is nohz enabled? And the system did not truly lock up, right?

Hi Ingo,

The CONFIG_NO_HZ is not set and the system seems not be truly locked up
,btw wc -l of the softlockup messages is around 108 times, while running
the libhugetlbfs only and this is reproducible with the 2.6.24-git7 also.

Peter just fixed a handful of bugs in this area - does the patch below 
help?

------------------>
Subject: debug: softlockup looping fix
From: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl>

Rafael J. Wysocki reported weird, multi-seconds delays during
suspend/resume and bisected it back to:

  commit 82a1fcb90287052aabfa235e7ffc693ea003fe69
  Author: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
  Date:   Fri Jan 25 21:08:02 2008 +0100

      softlockup: automatically detect hung TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE tasks

fix it:

 - restore the old wakeup mechanism
 - fix break usage in do_each_thread() { } while_each_thread().
 - fix the hotplug switch stmt, a fall-through case was broken.

Hi Ingo,

Thanks for the patch. The softlockup is not always reproducible, I tried six rounds without the patch to reproduce
the softlockup but was not able to. This is not seen after the 2.6.24-git8 and above, hope because of peters patch 
is already there in in the git(s).
