Just a note, the patch that Don Zickus prepared, which Cyrill attached to
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1125621 resolved this issue for me. I'll comment again when I've used a straight checkout of mainline that has this fix in it.
Patch : http://cache.gmane.org//gmane/linux/kernel/1125621-001.bin
Handled-By : Don Zickus <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The patch that was originally tested caused problems with perf on another processor and still needs another revision. That report was originally made at http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1126590.
Current patch for this was posted at: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1128149
Fixed by commit 2bce5da (perf, x86, nmi: Move LVT un-masking into irq handlers).
