Andi, does it still happen with the current mainline?

Rafael, I meet the same problem on 2.6.27-rc7 when testing cpu hotplug on a 4 core SMP machine,
then I go through the history of mainline, find one commit (2133b5d7)which looks like to be related to this bug, but its content is adding a debugging feature on classic RCU, not a bug fix, so do you know in which commit i could find out the solution, thanks.
