This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.35. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Tejun touched this code last. :P
The commit 3a101d0548e9 "sched: adjust when cpu_active and cpuset configurations are updated during cpu on/offlining" changes stuff in _cpu_down(). If code got scheduled on an offline cpu that would cause a GPF I think.
I added him to the CC list.
Following up via mail. Thanks.
It was unrelated to Tejun's patch. Sorry I doubted you Tejun... :P
