This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.26. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Dave, still not fixed ?
0: 4a 8b 14 ea mov (%rdx,%r13,8),%rdx
Looks like r13 contains crap, there...
Looks like CPU2 never finished its initialization:
Booting processor 2/1 ip 6000
Inquiring remote APIC #1...
... APIC #1 ID: failed
... APIC #1 VERSION: failed
... APIC #1 SPIV: failed
migration/2 used greatest stack depth: 7224 bytes left
And then later it oopsed in the CPU init code, probably due to ftrace.
After that things go wrong because the CPU init never finished but that processor is trying to allocate memory to handle the oops.
